Popdar #6: The Wombats

I have no idea what's happened to the Wombats, previously just about the most clangy indie rock you could have ever wished to hear (or not), but all of a sudden, the boys have gone to Tokyo and realised that they've got to up their game to compete with the bright lights of said day-glo city.
As a result, "Tokyo (Vampires and Wolves)" is euphoric, Bloc Party-esque and ridiculously catchy. The video is just a bit rock 'n' roll also, culminating in a shot of "Satan" spelled out in cocaine on a hotel desk. Whether he had anything to do with it is anyone's guess, and I guess depends how 'indie' you think you are, but if he did, cheers mate.
