A Guide to Love, Beats, and Happiness.

The Wombats finally have an LP that has been awaited for since our toes started tapping to "Joy Division". This ultra-catchy and super-flashy group has dazzled with strong beats and down-to-earth lyrics. Infectious guitar riddles into the mix quite nicely as well. Every song on the album creates a new dance as it creeps into your skin. Future success story? I think so.

If you're looking for a grin on your face and something different to put into your system then look no further, the Wombats are here.


Reallly Amazing

So i've been waiting for this album for some time now since itunes released "let's dance in joy division" as a free single. It tooke me some time to actually listen to the song but when i got around to it, i really loved it. The Wombats' songs are catchy and i can't believe it took this long for itunes to release it for the U.S.



After seeing their music video, Let's Dance for Joy Division, more than six months ago in England, I have been hooked to this band. Unfortunately, I didn't have the common sense to buy the album there so I have been waiting in anguish ever since. This is a terrific buy. Their catchy rhythms and fun lyrics are sing along fun. The Wombats have managed to create their own distinct sound while never letting go of this beautiful thing called music. They pep you up in Let's Dance for Joy Division and create lighthearted joy with School Uniforms. Definitely check this out if you haven't already.

About The Wombats

British indie rock trio the Wombats make driving guitar post-punk and electronic-influenced pop. Formed in Liverpool in 2003 while the members were all attending the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, the Wombats feature vocalist/guitarist Matthew Murphy, drummer Dan Haggis, and Norwegian-born bassist Tord Øverland-Knudsen. In 2006, the Wombats released their debut single, the Japan-only "Girls, Boys and Marsupials." Several singles followed before the release of the band's 2007 debut album, A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation. A year later, they released the Wombats EP on Bright Antenna.

The band's sophomore album, This Modern Glitch, appeared in 2011 and featured production from such modern rock stalwarts as Eric Valentine, Butch Walker, and Jacknife Lee. Included on the album was the Top 40 single "Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)." In 2015, they returned with their third full-length album, the synth-heavy Glitterbug, which featured production from Mark Crew and included the singles "Greek Tragedy" and "Give Me a Try." Somewhat of a breakout, the album was a commercial success in the U.K. and Australia, and also marked the band's first chart entry in the U.S.

In December 2017 the Wombats released "Turn," the first single from their fourth LP, 2018's Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life. Produced by Mark Crew (Bastille, Rationale) and Catherine Marks (the Killers, Wolf Alice), the album also included the singles "Lemon to a Knife Fight" and "Cheetah Tongue." ~ Matt Collar
