• wombats Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life (CD, £11.50)

    The Wombats' fourth studio album is released on their own independent label via Kobalt Music Recordings, and features the single ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight’. ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ sees The Wombats continuing to assert themselves as one of the biggest and best guitar pop sensations of our time. 2015’s ‘Glitterbug’ LP saw a UK Top 5 Album, headline show at Alexandra Palace, and has currently received over 200 million digital streams. Written from three corners of the globe - drummer Dan Haggis in London, bassist Tord Verland Knudsen nursing his new family in Oslo and frontman Murph in Los Angeles - Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life was created over long distance writing sessions, supplemented by intense two-week in-person sessions in Oslo. With the addition of producers Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man) and Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice), the album finds The Wombats pushing the boundaries of alt-pop innovation with a lush, ultramodern indie soundscape wrapped in Blade Runner synths, future grooves, celestial solos and space age melodies. Tracks: Cheetah Tongue / Lemon To A Knife Fight / Turn / Black Flamingo / White Eyes / Lethal Combination / Out Of My Head / I Only Wear Black / Ice Cream / Dip You In Honey / I Don’t Know Why I Like You But I Do
