The Wombats unveil the music video of their latest single ‘Everything I Love Is Going To Die'

The video is an upbeat homage to living to the fullest while we still can

Premiering as BBC Radio 1’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on the Future Sounds Show with Clara Amfo, the track is the latest offering from their upcoming fifth studio album 'Fix Yourself, Not The World', due for release on 14th January 2022 via AWAL. Inspired by the album artwork designed by eBoy, often named as ‘godfathers of pixel art’, the RMV Productions directed animated video sees the 8-bit city and the characters from the album pixerama come to life.  

Drawing equally from the tones and textures of modern pop as the likes of New Order and The Cure, ‘Everything I love Is Going To Die’ finds frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy at his most wry and surreal. “The song is about the impermanence of life, and with that in mind, the beauty of each passing second. Key line for me is 'Icarus Was My Best Friend, So I'm Gonna Make Him Proud In The End', which I guess is a playful take on living life to its fullest even though the consequences of that might be dire. Certainly not a call to Nihilism however, but perhaps a call to being present and the joy that can be found in appreciating each moment we find ourselves in,” he explains.
