REVEAL NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR LEMON TO A KNIFE FIGHT
The Wombats have revealed a new music video for Lemon to A Knife Fight, the first single from their forthcoming new album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, due February 9th 2018 via Warner Music Australia.
A tale of redemption, the video arrives dark, grisly, yet positively empowered. Speaking of his inspiration, director Finn Keenan explains:
“The idea for this video came from the line in the brief ‘David Lynch meets Power Rangers’. I wanted to make something that started off dark, surreal and little bit disturbing but then flip it on its head with a big ole’ twist that led to a ludicrous ending. These hunters do this every month, but this time they picked the wrong werewolf. I wanted the viewer to feel such sympathy for the main character, and such disgust for her captors that when the tables turn it’s quite the satisfying romp! I wanted it to have a deep-South America vibe so naturally we shot it slap bang in the middle of nowhere in Ireland, in my tiny hometown Cavan, which surprisingly made for a pretty convincing backdrop!”
Having debuted as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1, Lemon to A Knife Fight has received over 1 Million digital streams, 22 global placements in Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s ‘Best Of The Week’ and ‘A’ List.
2015’s Glitterbug album, that debuted in the Top 5 UK Album Chart and Billboard 100, has received over 200 million digital streams, surpassing even the band’s euphoric hit singles Let’s Dance To Joy Division, Moving To New York and Kill The Director, that established them as chart-quashing champions of the noughties guitar pop explosion..
