THE WOMBATS – Liverpool’s Indie Rockers Fixed Their 5th Album

15 January 2022

Band: THE WOMBATS
Who: Indie rock trio from Liverpool
Active since 2003 / 5 studio albums
(including the new one)

New album: FIX YOURSELF NOT THE WORLD
Out: 7th January 2022
Order info: here

NME: “Anyone surprised at the trio’s continued success clearly hasn’t been listening.
Pop ambition, indie ideals and sonic experimentation: it’s all here. ‘Fix Yourself…’ is
the first indie release of 2022 that might weigh into Ed Sheeran and Adele’s mud fight
at the top of the album charts, and it might not even be long before The Wombats are headlining major festivals. Don’t look so surprised.”
Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: This one will catapult the Liverpool trio up high on the charts.
They apply here the quintessential formula for pop-ular indie success: irresistible tunes,
a bit cheesy here and there (they know) but always groovin’ and movin’ (you can dance
to most of the tracks). The Wombats fixed themselves, now the rest of the world.

Singles: Method To The Madness / If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming With You /
Everything I Love Is Going To Die / Ready For The High

New single: EVERYTHING I LOVE IS GOING TO DIE
Already the 4th new piece the band shares

“The song is about the impermanence of life, and with
that in mind, the beauty of each passing second.”

Not really a happy reflection, but to the point
and also typically Wombats catchy…

Track by track…

1. ‘Soap And Cigarettes’ by NUN HABIT (London, UK)

Can’t stop playing this sickly sticky amplified pop cracker. It’s a tremendous
shot of adrenalin. The kind of tickling tune that dances in your head on repeat.
My favorite track from their excellent new album Hedge Fun.

Catch the vibe here…

2. Trigger by LUNA BAY (London, UK)

Wham bloody wham bam! Firework from the kick-off. This jagged jackhammer rocks
big time and triggers your appetite for going bonkers. Ace tune, ace chorus, ace score.

3. ‘If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming With You’ by THE WOMBATS (UK)

Brisk and breezy. The Wombats do what they do best, putting a smile on
your face with easy-listening pop bliss.  It’s the lead single from upcoming
LP Fix Yourself Not The World.

Start smiling…

4. ‘Living In The Heart Of Love’ by THE ROLLING STONES

A previously unreleased corker from the upcoming 40th-anniversary
edition of their Tattoo You LP. Vintage Stones, buzzing and fuzzing.

Start yourself up, Mick…

5.’Heart Like Chernobyl’ by SOFT CELL (UK)

A tantalizing doom and gloom meditation infiltrating your mind before you realize
it. An unexpected, but truly bold and clear-cut return. First single from the duo’s
forthcoming longplayer Happiness Not Included.

Tune in…

6. ‘diditagain’ by THALA (Berlin, Germany)

This sparkling dream-pop ditty makes you forget the grim reality for a while and makes you lose yourself in your head. Light as a feather and starry-eyed vocals. If you are a fan of Mazzy Star, Beach House or Cigarettes After Sex then this sweet little gem will give you aural pleasure.

From her debut album Adolescence, out 17th September.

7. ‘Vortex’ by NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS

A previously unreleased track that features on a ‘B-sides and Rarities’
collection arriving in October. A characteristic, moody Cave musing.

Sing it, Nick
