The Wombats have treated us to new visuals for their single, ‘Turn’, taken from their album ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’!

The video was directed by Brother Willis (Beirut, King Krule, Wolfmother), and in his words, ‘There was something about the pace of the song, coupled with the title of course, that suggested a constantly spinning visual to me. The lyrics so visually depict specific memories that it seemed like a logical way to show memories floating around inside Murph’s head’

‘Turn’ was written in New York and is probably the most electronic song on the album,” frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy explains. “Which is weird as I was pushing for the album to be more organic and less synth driven. ‘Turn’ was… kind of a beautiful mistake.”

After a fully sold-out UK headline tour through March, things came to an explosive head at the band’s sold-out London show at Alexandra Palace and ahead of a North American tour this summer alongside The Pixies and Weezer, The Wombats are currently touring Europe on the dates detailed below. Returning to the UK for festivals this summer including Reading & Leeds, Isle Of Wight, Glasgow Summer Sessions and Y Not?

It’s safe to say, The Wombats are back in style!
