Why do we like this?

There is nothing weak about Wimps’ “Mope Around,” a return from a three-year slumber for the Seattle-based band since their 2015 EP Super Me. Generating a cross wire between their Pacific Northwest riot grrrl predecessors and late ‘70s British post-punk, with added percussion, “Mope Around” spits an encouraging mantra about dancing against the odds of emotional doldrums. Singing, “There’s a new dance called the Mope Around/You can do it any time you’re feeling down” -- much like Chris Kenner did about the Watusi on “Land of 1,000 Dances” in 1962.

But, it’s 2018, and the brooding jive sung about isn’t going to make Wimps’ cut; on their third record Garbage People, the band's answer to the current political climate is writing winded songs about self-identity and caring, and this gut-punching single of upbeat rock n’ roll gives us the motivation to get up in the morning and do something about it.
