SAM AND THE WOMP – SINGLE REVIEW

Sam and The Womp – Fireflies (Womp Records) 
Sam & The Womp - Fireflies


Release Date: Out Now

Trumpet based euro-pop anyone? You’re in luck then. Sam & The Womp are a London based duo that have already racked up a hugely successful single to which ‘Fireflies’ is the follow up. Take a horny trumpet melody, throw in some Sia meets Kimbra at Bjork’s house vocals (courtesy of Bloom de Wilde) and a pounding clubland beat and you’ve got what is essentially the kind of summer time hit the will delight half the population and infuriate the other half (some to the point of violent tendencies). If it weren’t for de Wilde’s classy vocal performance I think I’d probably dislike this tune intensely but her tone and style just about saves it. Just.



Live Dates:

14th May – Mac’s Bar, Burnley
4th June – How The Light Gets In Festival, Hereford
11th June – Yellow Arch Studies, Sheffield
10th July – Bradford Festival, Bradford

24th July – Secret Garden Party, Cambridge
