Columbia Records is proud to announce Don’t You, the long-anticipated album from the trio of friends known as Wet. An astonishingly lucid and heart-wrenching collection of 11 tracks, the album is slated for a Fall release. The lead single, “Deadwater,” debuted on Annie Mac’s influential BBC Radio 1 show and is now streaming online via The FADER. The publication also spent a few days with the band and featured them in an in-depth magazine story which can be read here.

 

“Deadwater” is the first musical offering from the forthcoming project and the follow up to their auspicious debut, the Wet EP. The track can be streamed online here:

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 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.

 

The trio 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 on SoundCloud — like “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl,” a weak-kneed but strong-headed breakup ballad — they quickly began attracting attention, sometimes from unexpected places before releasing their critically acclaimed debut EP Wet in May 2014.

 

The Fader described Wet as “pure, unhurried… sounds like it was made in the city but good while driving to the country,” and social media stars like Kylie Jenner began gushing on Instagram. Former New Yorker music critic Sasha Frere-Jones listed “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl” as his favorite song of 2013, describing it as “completely perfect.” Interview magazine wrote: “Electronic music has never been this lonely and beautiful.”
