It's 2017, the first few weeks of senior year in Northern Virginia. I'm looking through the Internet for new music and I suddenly stumble upon this obscure indie band called The Wombats that I'm sure nobody at my high school has heard of before. I love their videos (especially the plush wombat) and their music is great!

Imagine my surprise upon arriving in the UK and finding out they're a well-known band that gets radio play and tours the country.

Though I can no longer claim Hipster Credit for liking The Wombats before anyone else did, I don't really mind. They are famous for good reason and are still working hard after years of producing well-loved content.

The Wombats' dedication to good music is evident in their latest EP. While they have updated their style since their earlier, more famous works, they retain the elements of their style that attract audiences. The upbeat tunes and relatable lyrics that evoke emotion remain strong in their newest material, though the new EP doesn't feel stale at any point. Unlike bands such as Utah-based Citizen Soldier who seem to make the same thing over and over again, The Wombats have managed to bring their signature feel to their latest music while covering new themes.

The EP is short and there are no songs that stand out as better than the others; they're all pretty good and each has something unique to offer. If you want a longer album or something more experimental and groundbreaking, though, go elsewhere.

And who knows...maybe this album will lead to The Wombats gaining more popularity across the pond in the US. I wouldn't hold my breath, though, as wombats have short legs so they can't swim very fast.
