Wet Premieres New Song “You're Not Wrong”
- Brooklyn-based indie-pop duo Wet has delivered a new song “You're Not Wrong”. It was written by Kelly Zutrau, produced by former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij.
The song will appear on their upcoming sophomore album "Still Run", which is set to be released on July 13, 2018.
The track is '70s R&B and soul sound with harmonized electric guitars, washes of synth and a honky sax section.
Wet consists of Kelly Zutrau and Joe Valle, originally the band earlier formed by three members including Marty Sulkow.
Kelly Zutrau said of the song in a statement;
"When I first played ‘You're Not Wrong’ for Rostam it was a slow sad piano-y song in my GarageBand. It sounded like lots of things I'd written before, but it was sort of sweeter because it seemed more definitive than some of the others. It was like I had been searching for an answer about love and in that moment that I wrote this song I had grown so tired of myself and my ambivalence that I decided to believe in it."
- She adds: "Rostam heard it and immediately added drums and started banging out this frantic piano part. He sped it way up and within an hour of working on it, it was a completely different thing. It was really surprising, but I loved it so much. He had taken it somewhere that Joe and I never would've gone on our own and captured some of that positive energy I had felt in the lyrics, but didn't know how to convey with the production."
