Video of the Moment #2825: The Wombats

By on Wednesday, 18th April 2018 at 6:00 pm

Back in February, The Wombats released ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’, their fourth album and follow-up to 2015’s ‘Glitterbug’. The latest video to be released from the album is for single ‘Turn’. I haven’t quite figured out the crux of it yet. Murph sings, “maybe it’s the crazy that I miss / it won’t get better than this”, so I thought this is a song about settling down and being okay with the fact that your crazy life before Adult Life reared its ugly head is gone for good. “I like the way your brain works” seems to agree with this idea: how about falling in love with a woman who might not necessarily be the hottest girl in the bar but the one with the solid head on her shoulders? But then Murph being Murph, he brings in some inanity: “I like the way you try / To run with the wolf pack when your legs are tied”. That doesn’t sound like much of a compliment. Hrm. Well, for now, I’ll choose to believe that ‘Turn’ is about enjoying being with the love of your life, warts, black lipstick and all. Watch the promo video for the song below and take care you don’t you get sick going round in circles. ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ is available now from Kobalt Music Recordings.
