Hot on the foot-tapping heels of their first single for the Leaf Label, South London rock’n’rollers Warmduscher today unveiled a video for ‘Big Wilma’ and revealed details of their new album Whale City. Formed of members of Fat White Family, Paranoid London and Insecure Men, the sound of Warmduscher is as wild and raucous as you’d expect, with ‘Big Wilma’ being the perfect entry point to the band’s infectious, blistering riffs.

‘Big Wilma’ is barely two minutes long, bursting out of the gates full of unrestrained energy. The rhythm is motorik, the vocals almost feral. It’s impossible to convey that in a video, and so it seems as though the band don’t even try, instead presenting a series of oddball vignettes (directed by Soojin Chang) that depict a woman with claws giving a lecture, another woman serenading stuffed animals and a man haunted by visions of dancing. 'Who Is Big Wilma?' The video asks. 'Who really knows?' seems to be the only response. All we can be certain of is that the road to Whale City will only offer more questions than answers.

Whale City is out 1st June on Leaf.
