Love Fame Tragedy – a Wombats-frontember projektje Alt-J- és Pixies-tagokkal

2019. augusztus 8., 9:16

A Wombats liverpooli indie rock trió néhány napja Amerikában a Rolling Stones előzenekaraként stadionkoncertezett, most meg a frontember Matthew Murphy egy olyan számmal állt elő, melyet az Alt-J billentyűs-vokalistája, Gus Unger-Hamilton, a Pixies-gitáros Joey Santigo és a jeles session dobos Matt Chamberlain (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, The Wallflowers stb.) társaságában rögzített. A Gorillazhoz hasonlított Love Fame Tragedy projektjével már harmadik dalát és második klipjét mutatta be, további híres barátokkal készülő EP-sorozatának előfutáraként.

A Wombats négy albuma (A Guide To Love, Loss & Desperation – 2007, This Modern Glitch – 2011, Glitterbug – 2015, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life – 2018) után Murph úgy érezte, több szerzeménye is maradt, amit zenekarán kívül tudna jobban érvényesíteni, de hagyományos szólólemez helyett olyan art-pop projektben gondolkodott, melyben zenészbarátok seregével dolgozna „valahol félúton a Gorillaz és egy szólóprojekt között”. A Love Fame Tragedy, mely nevét egy tavalyi Picasso-kiállítás címe nyomán kapta, szeptember 27-re jelentette be I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It című debütáló EP-jét, melyről az első klipdal mellé most egyszerre két újabb szám is érkezett (a fentebb említett híres barátokkal felvett Backfliphez videó is készült), míg a tervezett második EP-n többek közt olyan közreműködők lesznek, mint a Killers-basszista Mark Stroemer vagy a Bastille-frontember Dan Smith.

a júniusi My Cheating Heart az angol modell-színésznő Suki Waterhouse húgával, Maddi Waterhouse-zal:

There’s a park
Up on a hill
There’s a Golden Gate on a gold, gold lake
That day, I caught a chill
I wanna make mistakes
Wanna shake, shake, shake

Money, women, cars
Leave my head among the stars
‘Cause I want it all
Yeah, yeah I want it all
Puppet on a string
Is it such an evil thing
Just to want it all?
Yeah yeah I want it all

So do I sink or do I float now?
And does this river flow back to the start?
Back to San Francisco
Before you met my cheating heart
(Before you met my cheating heart, my heart)
Cheating heart
(Before you met my cheating heart, my heart)
Cheating Heart
(Before you met my cheating heart)
Before you met my cheating heart

Defibrillate my credit cards
‘Cause temptation occupies my head
I wanna stay
Don’t wanna talk
I decline the truth in all the words you said

Money women cars
Leave my head among the stars
Cause I want it all
Yeah, yeah I want it all
Puppet on a string
Is it such an evil thing
Just to want it all
Yeah yeah I want it all

So do I sink or do I float now?
And does this river flow back to the start?
Back to San Francisco
Before you met my cheating heart
(Before you met my cheating heart, my heart)
Cheating heart
(Before you met my cheating heart, my heart)
Cheating Heart
(Before you met my cheating heart)
Before you met my cheating heart

a Backflip című friss klipdal, melyben a 24 éves angol zongorista-énekesnő Lauren Aquilina a női vendéghang:

Lately I’ve been emotionally offline
Turning  crazy
I  can feel it in my spine

Been thinking about us all of the time
I’ve been thinking about us, are we going blind?

You  only want me when I’m stuck in your head
And  you’re playing the victim again
When you’re wasted and you’re shattering to bits
I  only want you when I’m lonely as hell
When I’m fading in a cheap hotel
Is it worth it to break our necks for this?
We’re a poorly timed backflip

Control  it
It’s just another moment in time
Don’t be impulsive
Don’t let it pulsate through your mind

Been thinking about us all of the time
I’ve been thinking about us, are we going blind?

You only want me when I’m stuck in your head
And you’re playing the victim again
When you’re wasted and you’re shattering to bits
I only want you when I’m lonely as hell
When I’m fading in a cheap hotel
Is it worth it to break our necks for this?
We’re a poorly timed backflip
We’re a poorly timed backflip

a Brand New Brain című másik új szám, mely a Los Angeles-i Courtship együttes vezérével, Eli Hirsch-sel készült:

Did I push you to the limit?
Did  I go too hard, did I throw a rock at your car?
It’s  always fun when you’re lost in it
Trying to hold on to a fish in the eye of a storm

I woke up in the whip I drove
Thinking  that you’d call, I really thought you’d call me
Shaky  face and fully clothed
Can we restart? I’d really like to restart

And  baby, I’m trying
But matters and decency never came easily
And maybe I’m lying
To my eyes and ears and lips and feet – to all of my anxieties

We’ll  figure out a way to buy a brand-new brain for me
And baby, I’m trying now
I’m trying

It’s awkward in the living room
Got your makeup on; you never used to wear makeup
There’s little to nothing I can do
We’re so far gone – we’re becoming a break-up song

I woke up in the whip I drove
Thinking that you’d call, I really thought you’d call me
Shaky face and fully clothed
Can we restart? I’d really like to restart

And baby, I’m trying
But matters and decency never came easily
And maybe I’m lying
To my eyes and ears and lips and feet – to all of my anxieties

We’ll figure out a way to buy a brand-new brain for me
And baby, I’m trying now
I’m trying

I’m trying. I’m trying now
I’m trying. I’m trying. I’m trying now
I’m trying

az új Love Fame Tragedy-számokkal egy időben Joey Santiago az anyazenekarával, a Pixies kvartettel is kiadott egy friss klipdalt, mely a szeptember 13-án érkező új Beneath The Eyrie albumuk második beharangozója a múlt hónapban videót kapó On Graveyard Hill után:

Call me devil, call me friend, but call me Black Jack Hooligan
I came all the way from Aberdeen
To live among the go-betweens
Let me tell you tell you about Catfish Kate
In the time before when she’s just Kate
Here in the mountains all alone
Before the time we called this home

Where is my angel fallen
Down at the river bottom
And will she get away?
Where is my Blackfoot blossom
Is she just playing possum
Who lives another day?

Here in the valley that we all know
A river bend that’s deep and slow
Where every creature drinks their fill
And other creatures take their kill
Now Kate went to catch a fish
To put inside her favorite dish
A catfish grabbed her by the head
And took her to his house instead

Where is my angel fallen
Down at the river bottom
And will she get away?
Where is my Blackfoot blossom
Is she just playing possum
Who lives another day?

Well, they wrestled all the day and night
The morning showed the bloody sight
Kate all dressed in catfish clothes
His whiskers for her catfish robe
Whiskers for her robe

Where is my angel fallen
Down at the river bottom
And is she there to stay?
Where is my Blackfoot blossom
Is she just playing possum
Who lives another day?

Now she’s known as Catfish Kate
