With acclaim from the likes of Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne and IDLES’ Joe Talbot, Birmingham’s Table Scraps featured as one of our ‘Ones To Watch’ in 2018, and they’re certainly proving themselves worthy of the title. Following the dark and gritty garage-punk of tracks such as ‘My Obsession and ‘Sick Of Me’, and the recent release of their debut album, the trio are back with a riotous new single.
Fuelled by the band’s trademark ferocious force and an infectious scuzzy energy, ‘I’m A Failure’ blasts out whirring riffs alongside the raw, impassioned vocals of Poppy Twist. Accompanied by a brand new tongue-in-cheek video, it’s another perfect slice of raging, empowered grunge-fuelled rock from our favourite Brummies.
Of the inspiration behind the new visuals, TJ from the band explains:
“Making videos without any budget is more fun. We took some cheap wood and socks and made this Beavis and Butt-Head inspired love letter to the golden era of MTV – excess, big budgets, channel hopping and boredom. Sock puppets and explosions were always meant to be together!”
