In the Post #110: The Wombats come roaring back with ‘Your Body is a Weapon’ single

‘This Modern Glitch’ was one of the first albums I ever reviewed, and it was definitely the first album I have properly obsessed over. The record just made me freak out in my car and I remember fondly a friend of mine and I dancing like absolute nutters as ‘Tokyo (Wolves and Thieves)’, ‘Our Perfect Disease’ and ‘Techno Fan’ blared from the speakers.

High expectations for the Wombats‘ new release ‘Your Body is a Weapon’, then.

Disappointed? Not one bit. It’s exactly the neurosis-drowned banger that I wanted from the Liverpool band. Swamped in Murph’s indomitable sense of misery, talking about a paparazzi who he witnessed taking a photo of some generic Harry Styles or Conor Maynard wanker.

At around 2 and a half minutes in, you get a taste of the unhinged beauty of the Wombats as Murph squeals, “my body is a temple of doom, doomed to not be by your side”, before bursting into the chorus of “someone protect me from the one I love!” It’s an absolute bouncing keg of fun, whatever the subject material, not something to get morose and dwell on but an indie banger, from the Liverpudlian KINGS of the indie bangers, the Wombats.

2014 watch out. There’s about 10 tunes up ahead you won’t stop hearing at any ‘alternative’ club night for a good while coming from these boys. Watch the animated kinda sorta lyric video for ‘Your Body is a Weapon’ below; the single is out now on 14th Floor Records.
