Scottish post-punk/new wave duo WOMPS, recently premiered their new video for “Manners”. “We essentially wanted to make a video that’s visually representative of the sound, scene we admire and style we’re moving towards. To do this we shot with Kristoffer Muir at Broadscope studios on an old handycam then filmed through the lens of the handycam with another one. We just really liked old footage from Glasgow bands like The Pastels. The concept is somewhat in-keeping with the album art but I’ll leave that to the viewer” The track comes from their recently released debut LP, Our Fertile Forever, out now and recorded by Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago.
Growing up in 90s, inspired by the 80s Glasgow scene, WOMPS are carving out a place of their own with their debut LP, “Our Fertile Forever” released on Brooklyn label, Displaced Records. The past year has seen the band playing worldwide. The band take influence from Scottish working class culture, the aftermath of the Thatcher reign and the disappointment of a failed independence referendum and the personal loves and losses entangled within.
Their debut LP Our Fertile is now out on Displaced/Orchard Records.
