Any song that starts with an energetic guitar melody and the lyrics “I've met someone that makes me feel seasick” will get my attention. One that also mentions how “Carrots help us see much better in the dark” will also get my respect. No, it's not a lusty carrot promoter from the Food Standards Agency; it's the new single from The Wombats 'Kill the Director'.

Soon to be embarking on a joint headline tour throughout the U.K with The Holloway's, the three boys from Liverpool have been creating quite a buzz with their witty pop/indie offerings and this single is no exception. Comparable to The Pigeon Detectives and Hot Club De Paris, they are good enough in their own right to be lavished with praise and should not be tossed aside as just another indie band. Lead vocalist Matt Murphy sings about his relationship, its strengths and faults whilst sharing his belief that “This is no Bridget Jones”. If you like your music listenable, non offensive and upbeat then no doubt you will enjoy 'Kill the Director'.
