Artist: Wells Next The Sea
About the Episode:
What a fun time we had recording this show. Be sure to catch them live 26 July 2012 at The Burlington 3425 W Fullerton Ave, Chicago, IL with Cottage Jefferson and Wooden Rings.
Taking their name from the English seaside town, Wells-next-the-Sea (Wells, to their friends) plays dusty Americana; alt-country layered with strings and raw harmonies; and the result is as much mood as craft. Painting from a musical palette somewhere between Son Volt and Neutral Milk Hotel, Wells’ folky approach to Midwestern pop has enough grit and swirl to seduce fans of both indie rock and alt-country.
Wells-next-the-Sea’s new EP Passenger Side is available now on Squirrel Trap Records.
