First brought together by their shared love of music, ten years later Liam and Natalie have reached a breaking point. Opposites attract, but aren't necessarily working long-term.

Liam (Josh Whitehouse), a struggling musician, cannot let go of his vinyl collection and refuses to adapt to a world of smartphones and instant downloads. Natalie (Freya Mavor) has let go of her dream of designing album covers and has become a rising star at her advertising firm. As they make the difficult decision to separate, they start by splitting their prized music library, but the soundtrack that defined their relationship keeps pulling them back together.

Director Daniel Gill and writer Philip Gawthorne fashion the film as a tribute to Britpop - the excellent soundtrack includes Radiohead, Stereophonics, Spiritualized, The 1975 and moreā€¦ but, oddly, as the film is named after their 2nd album, no Blur.
