Hailed for their boundless emotional pop well documented by the New York Times, Spin, the Guardian, NPR, and multiple other media outlets, Wet has been greeted with a rousing response. The album’s opening track, “It’s All in Vain,” soared to #1 on Hype Machine and cracked the upper tier of the Spotify Viral 50 chart, with Entertainment Weekly noting the track in its ‘12 Songs To Hear Now.’
Complex named “Weak” among the ‘Best Songs of 2015’ and Disco Naivete anointed the evocative song as the #1 ‘Best Song of 2015.’ “Deadwater” was included on NPR’s prestigious ‘Favorite Songs of 2015’ list, with the radio network highlighting the band on NPR’s World Café 2016 Preview, citing their music as “profoundly emotional.”
Media tastemakers have reached a mutual consensus on the band’s rapid rise, with PopCrush citing the trio among the ‘Best New Artists of 2015,’ Pandora forecasting them as an ‘Artist To Watch in 2016’ and Consequence Of Sound including their upcoming debut effort in their list as one of the ‘50 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2016.’ Don’t You includes 11 tracks and was recorded in a rented house in the wooded confines of Hadley, Massachusetts where the band relocated to focus on the project. The trio is comprised of the enigmatic Kelly Zutrau and multi-instrumentalists Joe Valle and Marty Sulkow.
Wet met through mutual friends as college students in New York City in 2007. After a few years of informal collaboration (Zutrau came to New York to study painting), they didn’t declare their official musical intentions until the summer of 2012. After releasing a few songs on SoundCloud, including the acclaimed "Don't Wanna Be Your Girl," the band began attracting a diverse and loyal following. Their critically hailed self-titled debut EP garnered industry-wide attention and paved the path for their recent major label release, Don’t You, available now.
