THE WOMBATS – Glitterbug (Warner Bros.)

I loved the Wombats when they started out, as they were the classic indie-pop band with a sense of humour. 2011’s ‘This Modern Glitch’ tried just a bit too hard to crack the mainstream, and now, four years later, they’re having another go. They’ve still got the tunes, but they’re polished to within an inch of their lives, and with the youthful exuberance long gone, we’re just left with an anonymous pop sound.
