Premiere: You need to watch this video for Tropical F*ck Storm's You Let My Tyres Down

Catch 'em live at Perth Festival next month.

First up apologies for the clickbaity headline - we normally despise the whole "you need to hear/listen/see this" trope; you don't NEED to do anything. You can sit around and pick your nose and flick it at the screen for all we care. You are the master of your own destiny, and far be it for us to tell you what you need or needn't be doing.

All of that said, Tropical Fuck Storm's latest video clip is an absolute joy to behold, and we think you'll appreciate us inviting you to watch it. It's like they've taken the swamp-rock vibe of the track and said, 'Okay, what is the exact literal interpretation of this vibe visually,' and out popped this masterpiece. Although we can attribute much of that popping to director Chris Matthews (Defero Productions), who has worked with The Drones (Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin from The Drones together with Lauren from High Tension and Erica from Palm Springs/Mod Con make up Tropical Fuck Storm) and clearly understands what's required when it comes to converting the audio to the visual for these particular human beings.

We'll leave you with the video, an inspiring quote from Liddiard on the track itself, and a reminder that Tropical Fuck Storm will be playing as part of Perth Festival's epic Chevron Gardens lineup on February 23.

"You Let My Tyres Down is basically about the real word; ordinary life, and how drab and featureless it seems until you write it down, and then you see it's pretty wild. They say that good books make shit movies and shit books make good movies. So if you're depressed and you feel like your life resembles a shit book, congratulations."
