The Wombats’ “Give Me A Try”: Idolator Song Premiere

This April, Liverpool trio The Wombats will release Glitterbug, their first album in four years. The band’s busy touring and festival schedule played a part in in the stretch of time between LPs, as did frontman Matthew Murphy’s personal exploration of the city of Los Angeles — something that also fueled the lyrical content of the tracks found on Glitterbug.

Today UK listeners of Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show got their first taste of brand new Wombats cut “Give Me A Try,” a bright and synthy track that’s practically tailor-made for the airwaves. (In fact, Lowe selected it as his latest “Hottest Record.”) Idolator is giving the song it’s official online premiere.

“This could be worth the risk, worth a guarantee, this could be the drug that never bites,” Murphy sings on “Give Me A Try,” a number that plays to the band’s indie roots while also going a long way toward compelling listeners to get their asses on the dance floor.
