“Don’t You”, the follow up to their critically acclaimed self titled EP is an astonishingly lucid and heart-wrenching collection of 11 tracks. Lead single ‘Deadwater’ was debuted on Annie Mac’s influential BBC Radio 1 show and is now streaming online via The FADER who declared the band “The most promising group in music makes a mix of R&B, electronic, rock, and pop. They’re going to be beloved by fans of all four.”
Wet, comprised of singer-songwriter Kelly Zutrau, and multi-instrumentalists Joe Valle and Marty Sulkow, make songs that resist easy categorization and invite every listener to bask in its intimate glow. But despite their wide-ranging sensibilities, Wet never compromises its core: sturdy pop songwriting and piercing lyrics. Electronic music has never been this bone-chillingly beautiful.
The trio met through mutual friends as college students in New York City in 2007 and has been not-so-quietly making disillusioned pop music with a laid-back and lo-fi elegance since the release of their debut EP Wet in April 2014.
The album, almost entirely self-produced, was written during a period of solitude in a rented house in Western Massachusetts last year. Wet works together as a trio on every aspect of the album; Joe and Marty work on all aspects of the album’s instrumentation; they take Kelly’s demos and arrange them to perfection.
Wet were recently in the country for first time ever playing headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne as well as supporting UK act London Grammar on a completely sold out national tour which took in some of the country’s most iconic 5000+ capacity venues. The band won over hearts of Australian audiences with the likes of Music Feeds stating “The band truly drew the crowd in… when the warm, swelling synths married with Zutrau’s voice in full flight.” and The AU Review declaring “when they close out their set…the cheer that they received suggests they left with a fair few more fans.”
