“Scrambled Tricks” by Wu-Lu
Wu-Lu has shared “Scrambled Tricks,” a new single off his debut album, LOGGERHEAD, out July 8th via Warp. The track is accompanied by a video directed by Ethan & Tom, who also helmed the video for LOGGERHEAD’S lead single “Ten.” Inspired by classic horror films like A Clockwork Orange, It, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the video comes with a warning for anyone with a fear of clowns. “‘Scrambled Tricks’ is about the game of life, leading with your own thoughts but too many times getting manipulated and deceived by people and situations. Things become apparent when the pressure is on and people’s true face comes to light,” explains Wu-Lu.
The South London artist’s album LOGGERHEAD touches on themes of anxiety, guilt, and facing one’s fears. “It’s a patchwork of situations that have happened,” says Wu-Lu, real name Miles Romans-Hopcraft, “but it’s a cohesive thing of trying to understand where someone is coming from and trying to explain where you’re coming from – relatable situations.” Born out of fearless self-examination and expression, LOGGERHEAD is music for the ignored, underrepresented, and those without a voice. The album features last year’s “South,” “Times,” and “Broken Homes.”
This week, Wu-Lu will take the stage at the historic Glastonbury Festival, followed by a UK and European tour featuring more festival appearances.
