the wombats interview 2022

English indie rockers, the Wombats formed 15 years ago, in Liverpool in 2003. Since the band’s inception, their popularity has grown exponentially.

Whether it’s being discovered on TikTok by a legion of new fans, or via an introduction from fans from the early noughties, The Wombats are enjoying a healthy dose of new and old fans alike.

With six studio albums under their belt, not to mention the numerous tours that have taken them around the world as much as your average pilot, the band most definitely enjoyed a little downtime during the recent Covid lockdown.

Like anyone with a bit of time on their hands, they got creative, and recorded a new album, Fix Yourself Not The World which was released in early January.

Needless to say, the lockdown inspired a lot of reflection, introspection, and looking inwards, and as The Wombats frontman readily agrees to, Covid was kind of a blessing in a lot of ways. 

Not content to leave 2022 with just one album under their belts, the band has also just dropped a new six-track EP accompanied by a new single Is This What It Feels Like To Feel Like This?

We chat to lead singer Matthew Murphy, aka Murph who is hanging at home surrounded by his dogs – one that is mega chill on the couch and cute as hell, about the profound album title, Fix Yourself Not The World and the pleasures of getting back out on the road. 

Fresh off topping the charts with their first UK number-one album, and the number #1 Vinyl Album on the ARIA Charts – continuing the band’s ever-growing love affair with Australia, for Spilt Milk and headline shows, including intimate shows at the Sydney Opera House.
