It’s been a crazy month, it’s been a crazy year for that matter. As we al tried to stay busy, so has the band Weslynn who has been non-stop working in new music and some really slick and sexy visuals. The last time we heard from the band was through the single and visuals for ‘Strange Feelings‘, a very playful and feel-good anthem that sparked a good time with every listen. Today we are stoked to premiere the newest project from Weslynn ‘Black’, the song much like the Music Video contains a darker and mature note than their previous work. It’s a seductive and more polished sound with just enough cynical accents to keep a Rock and Roller vibe like, we are not mad about it. We want more from it, keep them tunes coming.
Founded in fall of 2013, three Arizona State University schoolmates and long time friends (Jared Geyer, Greg Olin, and Kevin Holmes) started to play music under the band name WESLYNN. They started gaining a fanbase in their hometown of Phoenix, AZ by playing coffee shops, cover gigs, and releasing original home recordings online. The following year they released professionally produced 5 track EP titled Dark Days. The album was engineered and produced by Nashville recording artist, David Dreas. May 2015 yielded the single What Went Wrong. In a statement to Cronkite News at ASU they said, “Everything we have been through has brought us closer together. We have individually had so many personal trials, that when we start playing music, it all fades away. The world is constantly changing and throwing tragedy into our lives, but WESLYNN has given us the opportunity to rally around each other and made us even closer friends. This music is a direct response to those hard times of love and loss.”
After a yearlong hiatus, this Indie/Pop/Rock band is back stronger than ever. They recorded a 5 song EP in spring of 2016 with producer Dan Parker; leading off with the single titled, Strange Feelings. They draw their inspiration from bands such as Augustana, The Rolling Stones, John Mayer, Queen, and classic pop rock bands. With smooth vocals, haunting harmonies, and grooving guitar vibes, WESLYNN’s mature sound and style reaches people of all ages. The band continus to focus on writing new music.
