The Wombats have dropped a new music video for their latest single, Lemon To A Knife Fight.
This clip does not go the way you’d expect. Director Finn Keenan on the process:
“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!”
Lemon To A Knife Fight is the first single off the British group’s upcoming new album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, out Feb 9 via Warner Music.
