Murph from The Wombats has a new solo project, Love Fame Tragedy - check out the first track now

Matthew "Murph - i.e. short for Murphy" Murphy from "The Wombats" has confirmed what's been Very Much Common Knowledge On The Socials for a while now - he's 'doing' a solo project.

Working under the name Love Fame Tragedy, a first EP 'I Don't Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It' is set to arrive in September.

It's previewed by a brand new track - 'My Cheating Heart' - which features model and singer Maddi Jean Waterhouse and debuted as Annie Mac's Hottest Record last night on BBC Radio 1.

Produced by Bastille and Rag'n'Bone Man collaborator Mark Crew, the EP also features appearances from Pixies’ Joey Santiago, Gus Unger-Hamilton of Alt-J and former Soundgarden and Pearl Jam drummer Matt Chamberlain. Murphy knows people, basically.

A debut live performance is planned for Liverpool's Arts Club on 11th September, before shows at Manchester's Gorilla, London's Moth Club and Maze Club in Berlin. There'll then be some US and Australian dates.

Tones And I: Top of the Pops

Tones And I is a name that has taken over radio airwaves since unexpected smash ‘Dance Monkey’ flew to the Number 1 spot around the world, and stuck there for bloody ages. However quick it felt for, well, everyone - for Aussie popster Toni Watson her journey from the busking unknown was really somethin’ else.
