If you’re reading this now, you’re more than likely familiar with the Liverpool three-piece known as The Wombats, but in case you’re not, all you need to know is that they’re an immensely fun band. That word ‘fun’ might seem like a descriptor that’d get in the way, but it doesn’t and over the course of three albums, frontman Matthew Murphy has continuously shown that joy and melancholy can weirdly co-exist, even on the floor of an indie disco. The band are back with their fourth record, Beautiful People Will Break Your Heart, an album that delves into where the band are at now, specifically the heart and mind of Matthew Murphy.

Ken Grand-Pierre spoke to Matthew Murphy about getting married, where 'Lemon And A Knife Fight’ came from, what will surprise people with album four, and touring anniversary shows for the first album. Check out their conversation below.

“I feel like my life is more multi-faceted than being that dude from that band.”
