Warmduscher deliver another characteristically unhinged video. What did you expect?
London five-piece Warmduscher follow their own internal logic, tracing a path through garage rock, trash glam, acid-frazzled funk with a dazed expression and a kink in their step. All this might explain their latest video for single Summertime Tears – today’s Crack video premiere.
The clip, which is framed by a telenovela intro and outro, follows a character called Uncle Sleepover as he goes about his day to a soundtrack of grotty lounge rock. Rather than try and make sense of the video ourselves, here’s Warmduscher’s Clams Baker to explain the, uh, concept:
“Enjoy this rare footage from the 1981 telenovela El Corazón de los Serbratos starring Uncle Sleepover, as he reaches out for human contact in post apocalyptic Cape Cod. Filmed over a 10 year period and faced with more catastrophic hurdles than Terry Gilliam’s Lost In La Mancha… El Corazón de los Sebratos’ struggle has placed itself alongside the likes of Jodorowsky, Pasolini, and D’Urville Martin. So strap yourself in and let your mind follow one man’s battle against time with love in his heart and the devil pulling on his necktie.
The single is taken from their second album Whale City, released in June this year on The Leaf Label.
