REVIEW | THE WOMBATS – GREEK TRAGEDY
Matthew Murphy called up Triple J this morning to air the new single his band has just released. Playing for the first time in Australia, ‘Greek Tragedy’ is the second single from The Wombats’ upcoming album Glitterbug. 18 months ago they released ‘Your Body Is A Weapon’ which was extremely well received and The Wombats have been busy since then creating and recording their third studio album.
Speaking to the Matt and Alex breakfast show, Murphy described the creative process for the song happened when he was going through a stressful period in relationships in his life.
It is full of heartfelt lyrics accompanied by the unique feel of The Wombats songs we know so well.
The song can be listened to in full here:
