‘Nausea’ is the debut single from Sydney band The Cherubs: an exquisite slice of hyperactive indie pop featuring splashing jangling guitars and a suave über cool vocal delivery, louche and insouciant. We are honoured today to exclusively reveal the new video for this brilliant track.

The Cherubs are a duo with extensive experience as session musicians. The quality shines though – exhibiting a stature and mastery of bands like The Strokes, DMA’s or The Arctic Monkeys: indelible melodies and sophisticated instrumentation forming a perfect pop song with substance. The band says of the single:

This song came together on the final days of us writing the EP. In fact, Dylan wrote the guitar and lyrics overnight while babysitting two cats and the next day we jammed it out as a band. It was a very quick song to write, what with not over thinking the arrangement, rather letting the guitars call-and-response be the hook and allow the lyrics to tell somewhat of a statement against it all.

The video, directed and edited by Liam Clark, is an immersive performance piece that swirls like eddies around the players: an enigmatic delivery from the band. The band notes:

The music video was shot in half a day at Good Egg Studios in Riverstone.  It’s worth noting Tim Berner on bass was attacked by a cactus the day of shooting and as a result had to be replaced by a dear friend and guitarist José Herández.

The video captures the spirit of the song – freewheeling and dynamic, full of verve and attitude. The production was assisted by Ian Tyley on cinematography and camera ops, as well as students from the prestigious School of Audio Engineering to bring the concept and performance to life.

‘Nausea’ is out today and available to download and stream here. And even better news, an EP is on the way. This is a very exciting debut.
