The Wombats return with a cracking tune in Lemon To A Knife Fight and a superb, high-octane video by Finn Keenan that keeps on delivering, and defying expectations, until the last moment.

And lead singer Matthew Murphy's tennis ball plays a crucial role in the outcome of the story...

FINN KEENAN:

"The idea for this video came from the line in the brief: 'David Lynch meets Power Rangers'. I wanted to make something that started off dark, surreal and little bit disturbing, but then flip it on its head with a big ole' twist that led to a ludicrous ending. These hunters do this every month but this time they picked the wrong werewolf.

"I wanted the viewer to feel such sympathy for the main character, and such disgust for her captors that when the tables turn its quite the satisfying romp! I wanted it to have a Deep South of the US vibe, so naturally we shot it slap bang in the middle of nowhere in Ireland, in my tiny hometown Cavan, which surprisingly made for a pretty convincing backdrop!"
