Glaswegian rockers WOMPS pay tribute to the scene that nurtured them with their new video for their song ‘Manners’. Taken from their debut album ‘Our Fertile Forever’, the simple, hazy imagery is a conscious throwback to the throwback style employed by the likes of The Pastels.

‘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 duo’s stripped-down garage-inspired alt-rock has earned plaudits from the likes of Consequence Of Sound and KEXP, and has taken them to Radio 1’s Big Weekend and SXSW. ‘Our Fertile Forever’, produced by none other than Steve Albini, is available on most platforms through Displaced/Orchard Records.
