Begone one hit wonder mentality – The Wombats have been going steadily for years with acceptable amounts of success since that Joy Division song first hit indie club nights country-wide. They may not have been the first to couple upbeat pop melodies with nihilistic commentary of modern life, but they’ve been doing it far longer than a lot of contemporaries who fell by the wayside long ago.

Whether it’s the existential crisis set to a carefree jazz groove of Everything I Love Is Going To Die or the optimistic, atmospheric mellowness of Method To The Madness, Fix Yourself Not The World updates that tried and tested formula with songs recorded remotely in lockdown that will have you contemplating all your life choices on a dancefloor of your choosing.
