Glasgow native and Manchester export Gary McClure’s new project American Wrestlers are one of our recent Band To Watch graduates, and they recently cracked our list of the 50 best new bands of 2015. Director Evan Cutler Wattles’ new music video for “The Rest Of You” is a perfect foray into the band’s patchwork ’90s lo-fi. The video oversees a zombie apocalypse epidemic, but without the zombies. Instead, the humans of metropolitan Chicago become blurry, faceless drones thanks to the inevitable influence of the static age. It’s hard to miss the social commentary watching the civilians becoming large blurs as the blankness ultimately takes over the entire city like a virus. “The Rest Of You” is taken from American Wrestlers’ self-titled debut, released in March. Watch it below.
American Wrestlers is available now on Fat Possum.
