"Elektrobank" is a song by English electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers. It was released as a single from their second album, Dig Your Own Hole, on September 1997. It peaked at number 17 on the UK Singles Chart.[1] Spike Jonze directed the music video, which depicted a mixed artistic gymnastics / rhythmic gymnastics competition with his future wife Sofia Coppola as one of the competitors. It has been called "arguably Jonze's greatest music video".[2] Vocals were performed by Keith Murray; the bass line is performed by Ali Friend. Despite reaching number 17 in the UK Singles Chart, the single does not feature on either of the duo's singles compilations, Singles 93–03 and Brotherhood.
