The Wombats Returns With New Song “Method to the Madness”
- British rock band The Wombats, consisting of Matthew Murphy, Tord Øverland Knudsen, and Dan Haggis, returned with a new song “Method to the Madness”.
The track is their first material since the 2018 album “Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life”.
It was written by Tord Øverland, Daniel Haggis and Matthew Murphy. Produced by Mark Crew.
The accompanying music video was directed by Aaron Brown.
“'Method To The Madness' is about trying to find patterns within chaos and ultimately giving up, and letting go,” Matthew Murphy said of the song. “Some of the lyrics are lifted from my own honeymoon experience – walking around European cities, being amongst tourists whilst simultaneously being one myself, and generally blagging it with last-minute hotel bookings. Feeling excitement but still being fully aware that nothing much has changed.”
- Director Aaron Brown said, “Murph told me where the material of the song came from and I really related to his honesty. The story is about how the muse finds you on its watch, not on ours. It is up to you to step into that inspiration without fear. The world of the muse doesn't make sense, but its beauty is irresistible. It is also scary though. You have to walk down dark hallways and challenge your fears, but when you do you develop a relationship with the muse. You see where it hides out and in turn, what inspires it! By the end of the video, we see our hero bring the muse to life in an intentional way. She has found how to connect with it consciously, and not always be at the mercy of its bidding. Through this healthy relationship, our her has begun the path of an artist.”
