Wombats: ‘Thanks for busting some real bad moves to our tune’

The trio thank the nation's dancers after claiming Shockwave NME Award

The Wombats have thanked the nation’s dancers for their Shockwave NME Award.

The trio picked up the Dancefloor Filler Award at yesterday’s ceremony (February 28) in London, and admitted they owe a big debut to Club NME punters who have not only danced to their song, but came home from the club and remembered to vote for them.

“It’s great to win this award and thing that everyone is getting their groove on and busting some real bad moves and cutting shapes and squares on the dancefloor to our tune,” said drummer Dan Haggis. “It’s just amazing to think.”


He added: “We don’t really see it in our little bubble, but it’s a nice thumbs up – (referring to the distinctive trophy) or middle finger up!”
