SINGLE Review: 'Backflip'- Love Fame Tragedy

This is actually a double single review, because The Wombats' frontman 'Murph' has released two new tracks from his solo project, Love Fame Tragedy. The two tracks are 'Backflip' and 'Brand New Brain'.

"Lately, I've been emotionally offline," sings Murph. The track was debuted exclusively on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show last night. 




'Backflip' features Pixies’ Joey Santiago, alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton, Matt Chamberlain of Soundgarden and Lauren Aquilina. The video is inspired by Black Mirror. 


Speaking about the collaboration, Joey Santiago said: “I tried to put my own spin on it, it was very quick and painless. He pretty much knew what he wanted, when it was good, it was good. He’s a very talented man.”

Murph said: “When you hear Joey play the guitar you can just tell it’s him and the same thing with Gus with the key melodies he chooses and the distinct sound of his voice. It’s great to have artists and musicians like that playing on songs of your own because it makes them ten times cooler, at least in your own head.”
'Brand New Brain' has also been released today and comes from Love Fame Tragedy's debut EP, 'I Don't Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It' which will be released 27 September.
