The Wombats - "Tokyo (Vampires and Werewolves)"

Let the synth-driven dance rock wash over you like smuggled-in beer at a Japantown karaoke bar. The Wombats nail it with this video for "Tokyo (Vampires and Werewolves)" that reeks of good times and high-risk drug abuse. I feel for the band manager that has to ultimately (and unsuccessfully) rein in the snow-influenced mania, but at the same time, you just want the song to keep going to see what madness unfolds next. The Wombats are generally fun and uproarious, but they consistently write pretty good songs that sound like a lot of other noise. Personally, I think this video sets a pretty high watermark, but the rest of their output really ain't bad either. Give a spin, have a listen... This Modern Glitch is available now.
