It might be expected for a couple of Liverpudlians to bring their own gloom to summer, but The Wombats are normally pretty happy-go-lucky. On record, these Brits have the pop energy of Jimmy Eat World and the attitude of Arctic Monkeys, which may be the reason their performance on the San Diego MTS feels so intimate.
In this episode of A Trolley Show, The Wombats perform "Jump into the Fog," a melancholy tune that evokes the coldest images of British cities. But underneath the dour exterior, there's youthful energy and a nostalgic ode to living without consequences. If that doesn't say "summer," we don't know what does.
