Weslynn – Black (Official Music Video)

Phoenix, AZ indie/pop/rock band Weslynn has released their new video “Black” from their 2016 EP Black + Champagne. It’s the second single – you can check out the video of the first single “Strange Feelings” and my exclusive premiere of the track.

“Black” is a slick and sexy track with the hook “I love it when you wear black.” Is it about the woman who gave them strange feelings? Or perhaps they have just met an alluring femme fatale. I really like the video – you never see her so she could be anyone you imagine.

Founded in fall of 2013, three Arizona State University schoolmates and long time friends (Jared Geyer, Greg Olin, and Kevin Holmes) started to play music under the band name Weslynn. They started gaining a fan base in their hometown of Phoenix, AZ by playing coffee shops, cover gigs, and releasing original home recordings online. The following year they released professionally produced 5 track EP titled Dark Days.

In a statement to Cronkite News at ASU they said, “Everything we have been through has brought us closer together. We have individually had so many personal trials, that when we start playing music, it all fades away. The world is constantly changing and throwing tragedy into our lives, but Weslynn has given us the opportunity to rally around each other and made us even closer friends. This music is a direct response to those hard times of love and loss.”

Weslynn draws their inspiration from bands such as Augustana, The Rolling Stones, John Mayer and Queen. With smooth vocals, haunting harmonies, and grooving guitar vibes, their mature sound and style reaches people of all ages.

Weslynn – Strange Feelings (Official Music Video)

Indie rock band Weslynn released the official music video for “Strange Feelings” today. It’s the catchy first single from their upcoming sophomore EP Black and Champagne, which will be released by For Emily Records on August 26th.

I grew up on MTV videos, when the first time you heard the song was when the video premiered. So it’s interesting for me to see the video after I’ve heard the song many times. It’s cool to see the scenario and story created and see the band’s personality. The video is quirky and fun and I hope you enjoy it.

The single is on iTunes

I’m so excited to share the exclusive premiere of indie rock band Weslynn’s single “Strange Feelings.” It is the first single from Weslynn’s upcoming EP, soon to be released by For Emily Records.

“Strange Feelings” has a retro pop feel, while sounding like the perfect song for these hot summer days. It reminds me of the innocence of young love and what that evokes, expressed smoothly and sweetly by lead vocalist Jared Geyer.

Weslynn is based in Phoenix, AZ and are Jared Geyer (Vocals/Guitar/Keyboard) Greg Olin (Guitar) Kevin Holmes (Drums) and Adam Simons (Guitar.) Weslynn was formed by longtime friends and Arizona State schoolmates in 2013. They draw their inspiration from bands such as Augustana, The Rolling Stones, John Mayer, and Queen.

Lyrics
STRANGE FEELINGS:

I got strange feelings
When I saw your picture
Like a folded corner
In a book I’ve read before
Strange feelings
These bones seem to know you
Another life, another station, lost in translation,
Maybe I erased you
For good reason

Strange feelings

Love brings frustration
Take a bow to the mountain
Remember me?
Living in a memory

I got strange feelings
When I asked you to dance
Barefoot on the floorboards,
Played your old records,
Like it was our last

Strange feelings

Out of a daydream, it’s coming over me
Tossing and turning in my sleep
Lost in this feeling, coming over me, over me

(I feel it) Strange feelings
(I feel it) so strange
(I feel it) strange feelings, yeah
