1996

Album: This Modern Glitch (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • The Wombats pulled the This Modern Glitch album title from this song, which finds singer Matthew Murphy reminiscing about, yep, 1996. He sings: "But my self belief, my self belief, Wasn't lost in the modern glitch." "Its about feeling quite lost and empty," Murphy explained Spin magazine: "Perhaps its about structure and the idea that everything is mapped out for us from the word go."
  • The vocalist told The Sun the album title is about, "inner conflict, something I think everyone feels, and something the three of us definitely felt making the album."
