about

Glasgow-based duo, WOMPS, are pleased to announce their debut album, Our Fertile Forever, recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago with some additional tracking by Chris Marshall. The impressive first full-length release perfectly encapsulates the band's high regard for creating heavy hitting, hook-laden, angsty-pop songs laced with clever dynamics and an attention for melody. Current single, "Dreams on Demand" alongside stand outs "Plasticine," and "Gift From God" are just a few of the tracks worth mentioning on this notable debut.

Our Fertile Forever will be out June 10th via Displaced Records.

Track Name: Plasticine
Plasticine,

you are playful but you’re mean.

Forming free...

what you get is what you see.

Make believe you’re as honest as you seem

What a relief, it’s always going to be just me

on my own.

Woe is me if ‘woe’ is wishing you could breath

under the sea

There’s loneliness and just serene

or could it be it’s always going to be just me

on my own?

Like someone left me here

like I could wait forever

The future’s far to clear

that I will wait forever.

Track Name: Manners
Say something sweet
I can’t savour
Mean something mean
I don’t mind
Manners
Manners
Manners
only give away
what you say.
Cat got my lips,
skimmed my whiskers.
Tongue tried to trip
Manners
Manners
Manners
only start the day...
then away.
Tell me something painless I can believe
before you know,
it’s already gone.

Track Name: Ritalin
Ritalin
you took me from punk kid to model citizen but I can’t feel anything.
The place I’m in
it is quiet but no one’s listening.
I just want attention.
Cinnamon,
you’re so sweet but I’ve lost my innocence.
I just take my coffee black.
The oestrogen
in my soy makes me feel less militant
let’s not take the power back.
And if we take a fall
do you think we’d rag doll?
I think we’d lose it all.

Track Name: Cancer of the Bone
Like morning light
run away from home.
Sunset prison
moonlight sentence.
My smile shone white,
cancer of the bone.
Shadows living,
less forgiving.
How? you played me twice.
Call me see-through.
I paid the price
You’re boring bright liquid acetone.
Brand me thriller,
brand me wholesale.
These aches aren’t right, cancer of the bone. Kick the stick man,
pick up where he failed
to crack a smile.
Call me lonely.
I’ve seen my time...
One and only one
controls the tide
I stay up late to
track the moonlight.
One and only one
controls the time
It’s not the same
when clocks no longer chime
I’ve overshot my prime.

Track Name: Dreams on Demand
It’s warm outside

Where did the winter go?

I’ll hibernate until the sight of snow

I’ll lay low

Bleach blonde hair, a pack of twenty smokes
 Parked out front but I don't want to go.

I’ll lay low

Dream dreams, all the dreams I have 

are on demand.

Once I died, I never let it go.

The warmth I felt was just an afterglow.

I’ll lay low.

Cold in, warm out.

Track Name: Cavity

I’ve had enough of hope
leave me with another anecdote
your handshake’s like a choke
and i’ve got broken bones
I’ve had enough to eat
but leave me with the fancy cutlery
that serving could feed three
but you don’t want no
family
someone pinch my
tongue and cheek till
I can’t smile for weeks
I chipped my tooth on
vacant youth but
you’re my cavity
I opened my mouth for nothing
I opened my mouth for me
I opened my mouth for nothing
and it left me a cavity

Track Name: How Are You
There is no such thing as love
just dependence and independence.
There is no such thing as luck
just statistics and some consequence.
There is no such thing as love
just difference and indifference.
There is no such thing as god
just religions and irreligion .
Candlelit, we’re waxing lyrical
burning quickly, call me cynical.

Candlelit, we’re waxing lyrical

I’ll admit there’s something beautiful
 How are you?
Track Name: Another Cell
Don’t ask,
Don’t tell.
Harass
yourself.
Take me to a place not far from here a place that i call home, a place i fear. Don’t clap,
don’t jeer
This is not an act
i can’t control my tears.
Please just take me to a place not far from here. A place that i call home, a place i fear.
Sometimes we need a home to run from, we need another cell with bars to breathe through.
Another cell.
Fall back,
disappear.
Every blade of grass is green once in a year.
Track Name: Gift From God
I’m the kind of thankless gift from god
I water wine with words of love
and drink to health with smokers cough
i was never ashamed
crown the king, a captor from above
kiss the ring and suck it up
some shine and others call their bluff
enough
if stupid acts as stupid does
it claims cliches to cite it’s cause
it dumbs me down, it overdubs
what’s mine is mine to let go of
frozen at the waist
bitter to the taste
watch me as I waste away
i lied but I do it with grace
striving to dismay
the length of every day
is flushing me away
I lie but I do it with grace
