EDITORS’ NOTES

The third album from these Liverpool indie poppers brims with a kind of nervy and cautious optimism, which makes sense because they penned the album from an L.A. viewpoint, mixing in what the band call that city’s overriding sense of “anxiety and opulence.” Such themes hit home on “Give Me a Try,” where singer Matthew Murphy intones “We could be gigantic” atop a giant dancefloor hook that would’ve done Erasure proud. Things get tender on “Isabel,” and the hooks absolute kill on the synth-pop bomb “This Is Not a Party.” It’s a sweet collection of starry-eyed gems, fat choruses, and witty observations.

THE WOMBATS STILL HAVE IT!!

After listening to all their songs (even their b-sides which never released and you can find them on YouTube) and then listening to Greek Tragedy, I can proudly say Tord's, Murph's and Matt's quality hasn't changed at all. I've never written a review because I've never needed to, but you right there. Yes you. Click the little button that has the 1.29. Now enter your passcode. Next? LISTEN TO IT UNTIL YOU HATE IT.

The Wombats Changing Sound

Every album The Wombats have reinvented their sound while still keeping their unique perspective. I'm so excited for this new album, I know I'll listen to every song on repeat until they become heavy with nostalgia.
