The track is lifted from The Wombats’ latest album, ‘Fix Yourself, Not The World’, which was released last month along with its final single, ‘This Car Drives All By Itself’.

The fifth studio effort also boasts singles ‘Everything I Love Is Going To Die’, ‘Ready For The High’ and ‘Method To The Madness’. It received a four-star review from NME upon release, and was lauded as “Pop ambition, indie ideals and sonic experimentation: it’s all here.”

She’ll perform the track at Eurovision: Australia Decides later this month, where she will contend for the chance to represent Australia at this year’s Eurovision competition in Italy.
