Now Playing: The Wombats

    The Wombats have a spectacular combination of humor and poignancy, as evidenced by the procession of events in our session, and the interview with the band. For example: their emotional, inspiration-laden single "Jump Into The Fog" is essentially a song about having sex with prostitutes. In between songs, the band jumped into a jovial country-leaning reconstruction of the great American classic, "Break Stuff," by Limp Bizkit. And when prompted, the band is self-described as "indie pop, if Darth Maul was in the band." But above all else, including their pervasive Liverpool accents, the band writes contagious melodies that lodge themselves in your spine -- the kind of music that sticks with you, and nourishes the emotional core. Watch our video to get a sense of the band's humor-filled disposition, as well as the potency of their latest album, This Modern Glitch.
