We all know the well-trodden trademark of The Wombats, fast paced indie tempo backed up by intriguing lyrics which make you happy and unable not to resist singing along to. The Wombats have become a well backed band with a reputation for a must watch act during any festival you manage to find yourself attending.
So this new track was expected to give us the same happy vibes of all the other tracks which have become a soundtrack to our youths, but trust me there is no method to this madness during the opening three and a half minutes of this song, gone is the energy and spirit of The Wombats and in its place the boring side of the bands back catalogue.
When something isn’t broken then you don’t fix it, our attention had gone onto the next song before this record breathed life into itself with the normal energy and guitar driven sound we’re used to. You got to admire The Wombats, they have tried something different and displayed a different side of themselves, but this got me to sleep more than my attention. So please next time forget the method to this madness and rediscover the sense of everything that came before it.
