English pop punk outfit The Wombats have just shared an extended version of their latest album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life—and they’ve picked their new song “Oceans” as their next single.
The track, which tells of a relationship coming to an end, is a fresh take on the new wave sound. A gorgeous synth and drum melody opens the song before frontman Matthew Murphy jumps in. “It’s all kicking off again / Words buzz but certainly don’t sink in,” he croons in his unmistakable voice. When the chorus hits, the beat kicks in and lifts the song into an irresistible high.
“Oceans,” alongside “Bee-Sting” and an acoustic version of “Lethal Combination,” are the new additions to the re-released album. Dive into “Oceans” below:
