Peking Duk x The Wombats Premiere New Music Video for “Nothing to Love About Love”
- Australian electronic music duo Peking Duk, consisting of Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles, teamed up with British alt-rock band The Wombats to released a new song “Nothing to Love About Love” back in October.
This marks the first time Peking Duk and The Wombats have worked together.
On December 1st, they dropped a new music video for the song, directed by Khanh Nguyen and Paul Vi Minh.
The video was filmed in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam. The track was written by Tyler Spry, Reuben Styles, Matthew Murphy and Adam Hyde.
Both artists recorded the song in Los Angeles, Oslo and London earlier this year. “'Nothing To Love About Love' was a collaboration that came about very quickly from a session I had in Los Angeles four months ago,” Adam Hyde said. “I had written the beat in my bedroom a couple days before which I then showed to Murph [Wombats frontman Matt Murphy] and he turned in to something magical with a bunch of vocal ideas and this sentiment of there being nothing to love about love – something we've all felt at some point. From there, Murph reached out to the rest of The Wombats to lay down some extra, synths and bass in Oslo and some drums in London and I finally sprinkled some more sauce and distorted sample chops on the song, then we wrapped it up in a ribbon for you all to hear.”
“Been such a massive fan of The Wombats for a bloody long time,” Reuben Styles said. “So incredibly stoked we were able to make something work with them! Adam and Murph's original session had some serious sparks and couldn't be more happy with how we fleshed it out. Hope you guys love it as much as we do!”
