Listen to “Lemon To A Knife Fight” from Liverpool trio The Wombats

A moody song about a big fight.

November 07, 2017

U.K. rockers The Wombats just announced their new album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, their followup to 2015's Glitterbug. A first single, called "Lemon To A Knife Fight," was played today as Annie Mac's Hottest Record in the World and is premiering on The FADER today.


As frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy explains, the song's origins came from a real life argument. “'Lemon to a Knife Fight' came around after my wife and I had a huge argument on Mulholland Drive," he said. "I'd been watching tons of David Lynch too, the song just kind of fell out of me.”

Check out the band's tour dates below.
