At its heart, it’s a song about family and the impact the band’s split had on the people around him, and the music video, written and directed by Steven Knight and Anthony Byrne of Peaky Blinders, takes these themes in its stride, as Gallagher walks through the North York Moors, surrounded by family photos from his childhood.
Shot in striking black and white, the “One Of Us” music video is dark and moody, as three younger versions of the Gallagher brothers sit sullenly on three chairs to represent their troubled relationship. And, in an exclusive new behind-the-scenes clip, it seems that the vibe on set was much the same as what’s portrayed in the video. Shot on a wet, cold and windy day, pathetic fallacy was on hand to make sure Knight and Byrne got the brooding look that they were after. “It’s fucking raining. I don’t mind the cold. It’s when it’s raining you just look like a twat, don’t you?” Gallagher said, before finding himself an umbrella. “I mean, doing videos in the Moors, you’re asking for it, aren’t you? You know what I mean? It’s not Barbados, is it?”
