BEST NEW VIDEOS: WOLF ALICE “YOU’RE A GERM”

8/23/15
Wolf Alice - You're A Germ

It’s been a hell of a ride for Ellie Rowsell and Co. They’ve made the journey from band-to-watch to legitimate buzz band to being murdered by the lovechild of Leatherface and Mike Meyers. We here at Bitcandy have been singing the praises of Wolf Alice every step of the way, which is why their best new video, “You’re A Germ,” feels a little like a coronation for us.

The must recent video from their just-released debut LP My Love Is Cool, “You’re A Germ” is a tremendous homage to horror movies past and present. All the tropes of the genre are lampooned here. Things start with the quartet being murdered by a masked sociopath, then chased and eaten by a hoard of zombies. Basically, there’s something for everyone here. Dead bodies in bath tub full of blood? Check. Clowns with chainsaws? Check.

If you don’t like this video it’s because you’ve stubbornly determined not to. And really, that’s just a dumb way to go through life.

 

WOLF ALICE “YOU’RE A GERM”

My Love Is Cool is out now via Dirty Hit, and everyone loves it. Do yourself a favor and go pick up a copy. Or pick up a stream? However that works…

In parting, here are the lyrics to Wolf Alice “You’re A Germ.”

georgie rides a bike
to pick her up from school
he likes her cause she’s pure
she likes him cause she's heard he’s cool

you’re a germ
twist my insides
you’re a germ
we're here to fight

this is not exploring
when you are dead inside
what were you before him? (eyes wild, eyes wide)

makes me squirm
twist my insides
makes me squirm
we're here to fight
one! two! three! four! five! six! seven!

you ain’t going to heaven (eyes wide, eyes wide)
cause i'm draggin' you down to hell (eyes wide, eyes wide)
where's mom and dad so you can tell them? (eyes wide, eyes wide)
you’re a dirty fucker as well (eyes wide, eyes wide)

georgie takes to the mic
plays the same songs every year
his leather looks pretty cheap
and the clock gives him the fear

you’re a creep
twist my insides
you’re a creep
we're here to fight
one! two! three! four! five! six! seven!

you ain’t going to heaven (eyes wide, eyes wide)
cause i'm draggin' you down to hell (eyes wide, eyes wide)
where's mom and dad so you can tell them? (eyes wide, eyes wide)
you’re a dirty fucker as well (eyes wide, eyes wide)
you ain’t going to heaven (eyes wide, eyes wide)
cause i'm draggin' you down to hell (eyes wide, eyes wide)
where's mom and dad so you can tell them? (eyes wide, eyes wide)
tell them you’re a dodgy fucker as well! yes you are!
