Wet released one of my favorite EP’s last year with their breathtaking collection of sparse ballads including “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl” and “You’re The Best.” Since then, the once baby band has graduated to the big leagues, inking a record deal with Columbia Records.
What does this mean for the next chapter in Wet’s sonic evolution? The stunning “Deadwater” lifts the veil, revealing a melodic and expansive sound bolstered by Kelly Zutrau’s unfiltered vocals.
If Wet’s EP pulled at your heartstrings, prepare the feels to resurface with “Deadwater.”
Zutrau lays bare the agony and despair of a lost love singing, “shaking when he comes to me, shaking but I believe, shaking and i’m on my knees, there are better things for me…when you left, you left for a reason.”
“Deadwater” stings in the best way. To quote Frou Frou, “it’s all right ’cause there’s beauty in the breakdown.”
Wet’s debut album Don’t You drops this summer.
