The video for the extremely topical quarantine single features cameos from members of Idles, Dream Wife, Amyl and the Sniffers, God Damn and more
It’s probably fair to assume that after the nuclear apocalypse the only two things that will survive are cockroaches and garage rock bands. Some might say “What’s the difference?” but suddenly, an album about a band emerging from the rubble of a post-apocalyptic society and press shots in a ransacked and deserted kebab shop feel weirdly relevant. Who better than Birmingham’s beloved rock freaks, Table Scraps, to soundtrack the sound of “Spring Lockdown Fest 2020” with the new single I Wanna Stay Home With U?
Self-produced under quarantine, and with a music video that checks in on how many familiar faces (Dream Wife, Idles, Amyl & The Sniffers, et al) are coping whilst stuck indoors on a giant conference call, I Wanna Stay Home With U is the ideal antidote for all those dodgy acoustic live streams polluting your feed.
Watch the video below.
I Wanna Stay Home With U is released digitally (obvs) today, April 16, via Burger Records.
