Wet Knees is a collective of international musicians based in Prague, Czechia (Czech Republic). Not too long ago, they released a lovely debut single, entitled, “Sweater”.
Wet Knees – “Sweater” single
“Sometimes I think about the day we went to the beach and it started to rain. Sometimes I think about the trip we’d take and make out. Dipping toes in the sand. Sometimes I think about the times we’d talk for hours at the end of the night. But now, I wonder if it was all just a big waste of time.” – lyrics
‘Sweater’ tells a bittersweet tale about a young woman who experienced heartache the day her significant other walked out of her life. Apparently, her partner walked away wearing her sweater, and now she wants it back.
‘Sweater’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and a creamy saxophone solo. Also, the sentimental tune possesses relaxed instrumentation beautifully flavored with a jazzy neo-soul aroma. Furthermore, “Sweater” is a wonderful introduction of what listeners can expect to hear from Wet Knees in the near future.
“All the people you meet, everyone in the street could be the one for you.”
Wet Knees consists of Marina Laduda (vocalist, USA/Slovakia), Zack Slouka (guitar, USA), Tomas Hatala (saxophone, Slovakia), Emil Novotny (bass, Czechia), Jonathan Barron (drums, UK). The five-piece band’s musical influences include Lake Street Dive, Lime Cordiale, Seattle grunge, and vintage reverb sounds. Their vocalist and saxophone player both have a deep jazz background. Also, Wet Knees writes songs that are honest and bittersweet.
“You don’t know ’till you try, you can’t fall ’till you fly.”
“Remember the way you used to leave the dirty dishes in the sink every night. Remember the way we used to scream and fight and wake up all the neighbors in the night. And remember the way I would go out of town and you’d forget to water all my plants. Remember the way the music was so nice, but yeah, you never wanted to dance.” – lyrics
