As can be seen on the video, Vision Fortune have been trying to understand the art and the poetry behind synchronised swimming by studying and rehearsing some of the late Shtoro's incredibly innovative final-period-choreographies such as 'Once in Winter a Nightingale' and 'To My Love, aka Hiroshima n.2'."

Vocalist Patrick Fitzgerald words about the track: "Playwright Dennis Potter was interviewed by Melvyn Bragg a few weeks before he died. He swigged morphine and spoke fondly, sadly, with an opiated slur, about the apple blossom beyond his writing window. He knew that this was the last time he would see blossom. The last days, the last time we can do things, awaiting a weird execution. So I pulled out some personal memories that I suspect will come into focus if I'm lucky enough to die under morphine: Ghost Town by The Specials, driving through Brixton the night of the '81 riots, watching Francis Bacon supply rent boys with drinks at the Apollo Club in Soho. Heady things to ponder in a 3 minute pop song."

The song brought pastoral visions to him and he wanted to show a group of people summoning a unicorn - a friggin unicorn man! So he used this new, innovative movie rig to capture these pictures of gorgeous nymphs, a bolting horse, a less bolting lead singer, and melded this piece of gorgeousness that is the music video for 'Berlin Horses'."

The Montreal video actually doesn't have an effect or any post-production on it - it's filmed on an old VHS camcorder, so it took ages to shoot and to digitise. A friend helped me to shoot and he also had access to a green screen studio. Although it was a lot of work I was really excited. I'd never done anything like this before but always wanted to try it." He said.

The video was directed by filmmaker Sofia Coppola, who is Phoenix lead singer Thomas Mars' wife. "I love the song 'Chloroform,' and I had an idea based on a photo, and since I haven't done many videos, I like trying things that are unfamiliar. The idea came from a photo by Joseph Sterling in his book The Age of Adolescence. Thomas's sister's boyfriend, Mateo, who works at the Book Marc store, gave me the book last X-mas." Coppola said.

"I wanted to show they [female fans in the video] were at a Phoenix concert, but keep them afar and mysterious, and have the focus be on the girls. I wanted the video to be about the girls losing it over the band, and that feeling you have when you think a band is romantic." She added.
