SINGLE REVIEW: The Wombats – Cheetah Tongue
The Wombats will finally release their fourth studio album “Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life” in February and to be honest you can already prepare for a strong collection of indie pop-rock. Their lead single “Lemon To A Knife Fight” was a mediocre affair but their follow up single “Turn” delivered pure nostalgia. The albums third single “Cheetah Tongue” continues the nostalgic vibe with a strong hook, pulsating drums and oozing guitars and synths. Their sound continues to become more and more polished but in the meantime they never seem to lose their strong band roots unlike Maroon 5. Matthew Murphy’s harmonies are on point and soothing from start to finish and will have you transported back to the “Glitterbug” or “The Modern Glitch” era. While it’s not as instantly catchy as “Turn” it is a track that continually grows on you with cute and quotable lyrics like “My hands shake like jellyfish when you’re near”.
