Nathan’s been talking about Glasgow based Womps for sometime now so I figure I better get on this train before it’s too late. Today brings us word of this shiny new, rocking single “Plasticine”. Am I crazy when I compare the song to some really old grunge rock like Soul Asylum? I can’t be the only one hearing this…. I know several others have thrown out the Pixies references, and I see that too, but just entertain me on that one for a minute. Labels aside, you definitely need to check it out now.
Our Fertile Forever is due out on June 10th via Displaced Records.
If you’re looking for the next big thing to come out of Glasgow(as I always am), then you should definitely keep an eye out on WOMPS. The duo packs a huge punch musically, and it’s hard for me to imagine that all this great noise can only come from two people. Still, take a listen to this emphatic piece of rock n’ roll, and then add them to your list of bands you want to know more about. They’re coming to SXSW this year to spread their sound, and I’m hoping you’ll catch on. The band’s debut, Our Fertile Forever, will be released on June 10th via Displaced Records; it was produced by some dude named Steve Albini.
