Watch Music Sucks' Video For 'Wack Job'

Watch Music Sucks' Video For 'Wack Job'

A.K. / Thursday 14th May, 2020 12:23PM

The waxing and waning project of Sam Wilkinson, Music Sucks have risen from the ashes with the first single from their upcoming third album, released by Ōtautahi label Melted Ice Cream. This iteration of the group spans across the Tasman, with Wilkinson and William Daymond (Terror Of The Deep) recording their parts in Pōneke, and Tim Moore (co-writer of Marlon Williams' Silver Scroll-nominated 'Dark Child') contributing from his home in Melbourne. Their latest offering 'Wack Job' is a song about "falling into non-love" and overthinking, with un-hinged lyrics told from a surreal viewpoint. The music itself is stripped back and sweet; just guitar, bass and wobbly keys, more than lovely enough to make the DIY video feel a little less horrific, evoking unexpected empathy for a scary masked man. Moore created the clip in a booze-fuelled evening, with himself front and centre, staring deep into the camera and lip-syncing along, donning homemade balaclavas before a backdrop of hazy glitter and sparkles. While the trio plan to reunite for album release shows, the Wellington-based fraction of the band are hitting the net this Friday for Better Living TV Episode 2. Take note of where and when to find them below, and enjoy an intimate moment with 'Wack Job' further down...
