When we last checked in on Viagra Boys we found Sebastian Murphy wreaking havoc on the town in a drunken stumble. And at the end of that ‘Ain’t Nice’ video, the first song from their upcoming Welfare Jazz album out 8 January, he passed out awaking in the 18th century surrounded by servants in powdered wigs. Now the story continues with a new song and video for ‘Creatures’. Watch as Murphy explores his new surroundings of mansions, pools, synchronized swimming, and more within the magical realist-inspired scene in which he’s arrived. 

Drenched in satire, the band return with their brand of horn-filled, searing post-punk and rejection of standard genre tropes to deftly lay waste to society’s normalization of toxic masculinity, racism, misogyny, classism, and self-obsession.
