While face to face interactions rely heavily on non-verbal communication, now our typed messages rely heavily on how they’re written. Use cap locks and you’re yelling, don’t send a smiley and people think you’re in a bad mood, add the wrong smiley… and you’re meaning can be lost entirely. The Wombat’s latest track "Emoticon" touches on this very relatable subject.
They use their polished talent as a band to create a high energy, feel good track that I’ve had playing on repeat. The track starts off with clever lyrics and a well punctuated beat. The Wombats have perfected their ability to play a unified front. The vocals of Matthew Murphy hold their own even when the band increases their intensity. This song has a perfect mix of give and take with the right mix of highs and lows. The Wombats will be releasing their new album Glitterbug on April 13th, just in time for Spring.
