It’s been two years since Wet dropped their well-received debut, Don’t You. Since the release, we haven’t heard much from the CoSigned synthpop outfit, save for a pair of tracks shared later in 2016 and a guest spot on Rostam’s Half-Light. They’re back today, however, with the first single from their forthcoming sophomore record, “There’s a Reason”.
The song finds a more confident Wet, the watery heartbreak of Don’t You replaced with a lush positivity. “There’s a Reason” is undoubtedly the band’s brightest sounding effort to date, full of bubbly flutes and a buoyant rhythm. “And I’ll wait for the rest of our lives/ With the answer just out of sight,” sings Kelly Zutrau on the bridge. “There’s a reason you’re by my side.”
A press release says the track was produced by the band’s own Joseph Valle alongside Andrew Sarlo. The band’s third member, Marty Sulkow, is not mentioned. Whether it’s as a duo or a trio, Wet will reveal more information about their yet-untitled sophomore album in the coming weeks.
Take a listen to “There’s a Reason” below.
