Don’t You includes 11 tracks and was recorded in a rented house in the wooded confines of Hadley, Massachusetts. The trio is comprised of the enigmatic Zutrau and multi-instrumentalists Joe Valle and Marty Sulkow.
Wet met through mutual friends as college students in New York City in 2007. After a few years of informal collaboration (Zutrau came to New York to study painting), they didn’t declare their official musical intentions until the summer of 2012. After releasing a few songs on SoundCloud, including the acclaimed “Don’t Wanna Be Your Girl,” the band began attracting a diverse and loyal following. Their critically hailed self-titled debut EP garnered industry-wide attention and paved the path for their forthcoming major label release, Don’t You, to be made available everywhere on January 29.
