Wet Leather Shares “Too Serious” On Impose
Playing “Album Release” Show This Saturday
At The Studio At Webster Hall
Look Out For Debut LP This Winter
LISTEN & SHARE: Wet Leather – “Too Serious”
“The five-piece of Barry, Dema, Dylan, Jason, and Matt are a synth heavy powerhouse, paired with smart vocals, making for a radio-worthy sound. “Too Serious” is one of their more quiet tracks, scratchily delivering lyrics behind a spectacular soundscape, before hitting vocal peaks.”
“Secret Preference” is a bedroom-pop ode to weird fetishes, sung in a perfect pop falsetto. It’s unbearably catchy“ – All Things Go
Impose has shared the second single from Wet Leather entitled “Too Serious”. Prior to “Too Serious” the band released the single “Secret Preference” on All Things Go as well as a video to accompany it which debuted on Myspace. Look out for the bands upcoming full length due out in the winter.
Also on Saturday 11/12 the band will be holding their “Album Release” Show at The Studio @ Webster Hall. The show starts at 7:30 and also features two openers Fraidycat and Obliques. You can order tickets here.
Wet Leather formed in New York City in 2014, debuting with an EP of bedroom funk recordings which they termed “anxiety-pop.” They followed up with the more expansively produced video-singles SHAME and YOURS & MINE in 2015/2016. With music that “leans on the tight, focused pop the Talking Heads explored in their later years” neurotic lyrics and vocals that “swap falsetto for a ’65-era Bob Dylan deadpan squeal”(VILLAGE VOICE), Wet Leather is cerebral but aims squarely for the gut. SECRET PREFERENCE, their new video and single, owes a musical debt to the over-sexed 80’s, but flips the conceptual script with its voyeuristic clip.
