Video of the Moment #2187: The Peep Tempel

By on Monday, 19th September 2016 at 6:00 pm

Australian group The Peep Tempel come highly recommended by friends of mine down under with the most discerning of musical tastes. So imagine my delight upon hearing their third album will be made available in the States next month. The punk band from Melbourne will release ‘Joy’, the follow-up to the 2014 Australian Music Prize-nominated ‘Tales’, on the 14th of October on WingSing / RedEye.

To preview the album to the global audience who might not be familiar with their work, they’ve unveiled the promo video for ‘Rayguns’, featured on the new release. As the first single from ‘Joy’, it sets an incredible tone for an album I expect to be an incisive and unique look at the things that need to be talked about. In the video, lead vocalist and guitarist Blake Scott plays both himself and a tv news presenter unfazed by the exact inanity he’s reporting on. (A more detailed description of how this song came about is available from FLOOD.) There’s a nice cameo by a moray eel in here too, ha. Watch the video for ‘Rayguns’ below, and stay tuned for the release of ‘Joy’, which has the potential of being as big for The Peep Tempel’s career as ‘Holding Hands for Jamie’ was for Girl Band.
