Single Review – The Wombats – Lemon To A Knife Fight

When life gives you lemons it’s probably best not to take them to a knife fight, no matter how sour they might be, not exactly how the saying goes but still a pretty good piece of advice. After touring this summer in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their debut album The Wombats are back with brand new single ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight’. Maintaining their trademark bittersweet charm Mathew Murphy’s vocal dances along the bands fast-paced indie drumbeat. Though this time synths seem to have been traded for layered guitar riffs, ever so slightly mellowing the bands previous pop sound – but don’t worry only ever so slightly, hints of an Aussie-like summer seem to shine through The Wombats typically British despondent defeatism in the tracks, I’ve lost the argument before we even started, lyrics.

With news of forthcoming fourth album ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life,’ there’s going to be a lot to look forward to from the Liverpudlian trio.
