The Wombats

Moving To New York

Most GPs would recommend a spot of exercise and perhaps a couple of Valium, but on ‘Moving To New York’ The Wombats have concluded that the ideal cure for insomnia is to move to the Big Apple. Yes, you recall, Frank Sinatra’s “city that never sleeps”. Genius. Still, what else would you expect from the band that threw elated shapes to Ian Curtis’ musical suicide notes? At least the tune itself is a keeper, all tumbling drums, bug-eyed vocals, and febrile guitar that quite neatly resembles the sensation of being out of your addled mind the wrong side of 5am.
