It’s 2020, if you haven’t noticed yet and what better way to kick off new year and new decade by writing a totally cliche decade wrap-up post. I know, what you’re all thinking, another one of those weird posts, filled with Spotify links and playlists. I did consider it for a while and then it hit me. I wanted to do something different, reaching the depths of my memory, focusing on the albums that kind of shaped each year of the last decade for me. It doesn’t mean I only listen to one album the whole year, I’m not a freak, but those are just he reminders of how I felt back then.

I could explain, why each and every album I’ve listed is still very close to my heart, but we would be here until next year, trust me. If you fancy, take a listen, all of the listed albums hold a special place in my heart. And if you fancy sharing your own list, just let me know.
As I am hopefully back to life, The Wombats came back with their first official single from their 5th studio album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life. Lemon to a knife fight is truly and so The Wombats, creative lyrics meet catchy beat, circling in ones mind for hours.
The Wombats likes to show their faces in their music videos, this time around they appear briefly, opening and closing a very bizarre video for Lemon to Knife Fight. It starts with a kidnapper and his victim, driving to the woods to meet the victims fate. As per usual, there’s a dark twist, giving the victim a fair advantage against the kidnapper. It’s not a superhero kind of situation, but it’s worth watching.
Starting strong, we can only wait and see, if Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life will be as good or even better as the single and ones that came before.
