If i’m going to be honest, I have to admit that when it comes to music, I’d rathe find an album and listen to it until I could probably perform the whole set myself at a moments notice, than listen to a song here and a song there. I’m sure I prefer this because an album to me, marks a chapter in my life. Songs serve this purpose too, but a whole album? There’s just something different.
This past week I rediscovered Wet.
Wet is emotional and symphonic. With beats that bring you up just to bring you back down a couple lines later, It’s almost like someone gave them your diary and asked them to make an album about it.
I remember the first time I listened to Wet. It was their debut album that came out back in 2016, called Don’t You. The song was All In Vain, and I had never related to a song more in my life. You know how people always talk about songs speaking to them? This was that for me. As I started to navigate the album, picking out one song at a time—too vulnerable to hear what would come next if I listened to it in one go—I realized Wet was not just a band. They cracked into something that you almost couldn’t put into words. It’s almost like this whole other world that you know you’ve been to before, but just can’t put your finger on it. You just kind of have to listen, to get it.
Back in July, Wet came out with their second album, Still Run. I came across it a few days ago—how I missed this I’ll never know. But I’m glad I rediscovered Wet now. Like their debut album, they’ve followed up perfectly, weaving in familiar melodies and beats, but narrating the next chapter of your story. It’s intense and emotional, but this time, I can listen to the whole album in one go without wanting to cry in a corner!
My most replayed songs off the album: Still Run, Lately, There’s a Reason, and This Woman Loves You.
