“Undone And Unashamed” By The Murlocs

The Murlocs will release their new studio album, Calm Ya Farm, on May 19th via ATO Records. Spiked with their signature breed of sharply crafted garage-punk—and with lead vocalist, guitarist & harmonica Ambrose Kenny-Smith’s surrealist musings on the ever-turbulent world around him—the new collection ultimately twists country-rock convention into a free-flowing album fully in touch with the frenetic energy of modern life. Recorded in their home studios and mixed by repeat collaborator John Lee, the new collection brings that sun-drenched sound to tracks like previously shared lead track “Initiative” and brand new single “Undone and Unashamed” released today with an accompanying video.

Composed by keyboardist Tim Karmouche, Kenny-Smith who helped arrange and write the song’s lyrics says, “Letting loose all the time comes at a cost. When you choose to not hold yourself accountable for your actions by going on countless benders will only make things worse. People don’t always forgive and forget.” The band’s country-fried sense of humor comes to life in the one-of-a-kind new video.

Director Jack Rule shares, “When I was a kid I thought Shaun Micallef’s rotating room skit was the funniest thing I’d ever seen and always thought it’d work well for a music video. Then I saw an Ames distortion room in a museum and thought the same thing. Combining the two was a stupid idea. Getting a living room sized set to levitate, and rotate safely was diabolically hard. This was a weird, magic, memorable project.”
