Post-punk force WALL are barely taking baby steps, but they’re swiftly emerging as an enthralling force. Latest case in point - the gross, sleazy video for ‘Cuban Cigars’, a song from their recent debut EP.
Singer Sam York steals the show, surrounded by gross cigar-smoking suits, shuffling around in a disgusting hell-hole soaked in alcohol and drug residue. York barks in the face of monied fools, interrupting their phone calls and dumb conversations. It’s energised, sarcastic, in your face and utterly brilliant.
