Today, the New York City-based trio Wet is announcing a new album. Letter Blue marks the third full-length installment from the group and the rejoining of founding guitarist Marty Sulkow. Letter Blue continues Wet’s sophstiti-pop sound across 10 tracks written by vocalist Kelly Zutrau, produced by member Joe Valle with co-writing and co-production credits from Toro y Moi’s Chaz Bear, Buddy Ross, Frank Ocean’s go-to keyboardist, and Dev Hynes on “Bound” featuring Blood Orange.
To coincide with the album announcement, Wet shares a second single and video, “Larabar.” Just shy of three minutes, the song is a piano lead, emotional track speaking towards the cyclical journey relationships can take. The new song is paired with visuals directed by Andrew Theodore Balasia, who directed “On Your Side,” the first offering from Letter Blue.
Speaking on the latest single, Zutrau says: “Step into the light for the very first time. ‘Larabar’ was a little breakthrough in the album process, the first song that came together that everything else formed around. It’s about a relationship cycle that becomes a loop – Eventually a feedback loop – Obsessively repeating, breaking up, getting back together, breaking up again. How memory distorts reality, solitude vs. company, accountability, guiltiness, loving someone who left and what to do when they come back and on and on, etc..”
