The Wombats is an indie rock band with a knack for solid pop hooks and instantly accessible melodies. They work mostly in the Britpop style, having cycled through its various shadings since their first EP came out in 2007, which also includes a synth-heavy new wave period whose bits and pieces they have retained as a part of their ongoing sound. It is easy to find threads in their music that connect to various '90s sources including Blur, LCD Soundsystem, and The Strokes. Their songs often have a nice upbeat feel paired with the hooks, combined with a clear eye towards production and a clear sense of when to push up the sound and when to pull back. The band delivers these dynamics with the kind of precision that comes from their years of experience in the field.
