‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ sees The Wombats continuing to assert themselves as one of the biggest and best guitar pop sensations of our time. 2015’s ‘Glitterbug’ LP saw a UK Top 5 Album, headline show at Alexandra Palace, and has currently received over 200 million digital streams. Whilst June 2017’s headline performance at Brixton Academy to celebrate the tenth anniversary of platinum-selling debut album ‘A Guide To Love, Loss & Desperation’ sold-out in under 24 hours, not to mention two sold-out nights at the Sydney Opera House.
Having premiered as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1, ‘Lemon to A Knife Fight’ rides a push-pull rollercoaster of euphoria and desperation, delivered with the band’s signature animation and wit. Speaking of the track, frontman Matthew ‘Murph’ Murphy adds: “Lemon to a Knife Fight came around after my wife and I had a huge argument on Mulholland Drive. I'd been watching tons of David Lynch too, the song just kind of fell out of me.”
