The Liverpudlian indie pop stalwarts have returned to our shores to showcase their latest album Glitterbug, which was released in April. There's plenty of Australian love for these marsupial-inspired lads; this is not the loveable Liverpudlians first trip to Australia this year. In February, they played a handful of secret gigs to offer up a taste of Glitterbug, and needless to say the response was overwhelmingly positive.
Haven't heard the album yet? The Wombats' new material sounds fresh and intricate while still maintaining their infectious and hook-ridden sound; look out for tracks such as ‘Give Me A Try’ and ‘Greek Tragedy’.
For purists out there who can’t let go of memories of thrashing around a house party to ‘Let’s Dance To Joy Division’, don’t fret. You can bet your right hand they’ll be keeping the party going with their dancefloor fillers from days of yore such as ‘Jump into the Fog’, ‘Moving to New York’, and ‘Kill the Director’.
