Following up upon Wet’s recent release of their music video for “You’re The Best,” the trio is back to announce new tour dates this Fall in support of Tobias Jesso Jr. The is viewable below. Additionally, Wet has also announced a UK residency in September.
Don’t You, the forthcoming album from the trio of friends known as Wet, is a lucid and heart-wrenching collection of 11 tracks set to be released digitally and physically via Columbia.
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.
The album, almost entirely self-produced, was written during a period of solitude in a rented house in Western Massachusetts last year. Wet collaborated intensely with each other on the album while honing in on their individual strengths during the process. Kelly’s deeply personal words on Don’t You project sweetness and brutality, confusion and clarity, rawness and polish, naïveté and wisdom.
Wet met through mutual friends as college students in New York City in 2007. After a few years of informal dabbling, they began officially making music as Wet during the summer of 2012, an especially aimless and emotionally turbulent period. After releasing a few songs digitally, they finally released their debut EP Wet in May 2014.
