Glasgow post-punk act WOMPS are energetic, angular, and fun. Their Steve Albini-recorded debut features the single “Manners,” which highlight’s the band’s use of piercing guitar work, frenetic drums, and singer Ewan Grant’s distinct howl. Its easy to see why this intrepid group performed at SXSW this year – instead of polishing their scuzzy edges, the band let their music do the talking, opting for something sincere and sunny instead of polished and robotic.
WOMPS’ debut, Our Fertile Forever, is out now via Displaced Records. Check it out on their Bandcamp page.
