Video Premiere:

Oh Pep!

“Wanting”

Albums that reference “life on tour” are commonplace in the music world, often following breakthrough records when bands and artists find themselves with little else to write about given the amount of time they have to spend moving around from venue to venue. Familiar enough to be a medium in their own right, music videos that reference this very situation are also a somewhat customary endeavour, and the latest clip from Oh Pep! is one of the more inspired takes on such a thing, loosely touching upon the past three years they’ve spent on the road; a home movie of sorts that follows them around Melbourne streets where this very track was written.

Lifted from the band’s brilliant Stadium Cake LP, “Wanting” is a glorious slice of impassioned pop music, synonymous with the considered, wonderfully endearing craft that made said record such an impressive listen. Premiering below, the new video is tied in with further live shows; the Australian pair kicking-off a new, and full, UK tour in Brighton last night, and continuing on until November 10th (see the full set of dates below).

Brilliantly warm, with enough mystical bite to keep you coming back again and again, Stadium Cake is one of the years most compelling pop records, and we’re very pleased to share their new video today. Check it out below; here’s what Oh Pep! themselves had to say about it:

“We’ve spent the majority of the past 3 years on the road playing music, growing and learning all the way. This was filmed in Liv’s car around the streets of Fairfield in Melbourne where ‘Wanting’ was written. The hair cut, driving and the tour videos represent this constantly changing and moving lifestyle.”

The duo’s debut album “Stadium Cake” is out now
