Judging by their previous videos, Bad Sounds are not a band that take themselves too seriously. After Annie Mac debuted their latest track ‘Wages’, they’ve now shared the brilliant, and light-hearted accompanying video for it. Watch it in full below.

In it, the group go to Kung Fu school (in a way) with some guidance from Bruce Lee, who helps them nail their high-flying kicks, wielding some pretty dangerous looking weapons. The accompanying song blends the bombastic nature of A Tribe Called Quest’s early material and the wicked storytelling ability of Jamie T, as the group recall their time working in retail and how it makes your ‘patience paper thin’. We hear you.
Of the song, the group said: “‘Wages‘ is our working in retail ballad, it comes from us getting stuck in situations that we don’t want to be stuck in. It’s just a bit of a sulk and some trumpets…”
