Wet began as a long-distance collaboration between Providence, New York, and Los Angeles–long email threads of garageband demos, zip files full of poorly organized MIDI files and sample folders, and so many nameless mp3s of disembodied vocals or abandoned instrumentals. All of which culminated in their self-titled debut EP released on Neon Gold Records in October 2013.
The beating heart of Wet’s slow motion minimal pop is singer Kelly Zutrau’s voice, ethereal and primal in its vulnerability and its emotive clarity; a pulse given corporeal form by the playful and concise production work of multi-instrumentalists Joe Valle and Martin Sulkow. Their self-titled debut EP is out now, on the internet.
