“Nominated for best music video and indie pop act of 2012 in the Veer Magazine Local Music Awards “
Growing up in the Suburbs of Virginia Beach, VA 21 year old Wesley Bunch started writing music at the age of 14. Later starting a post-rock instrumental band Bunch, it was not till just in 2012 that Suburban Living became Wesley’s primary venture. Classified as “dream-pop’, Suburban Living’s sound is a combination of jangly guitars drenched in chorus and reverb with textural synths and bouncing drum rhythms.” Wesley pulls a lot of his inspiration from the 80s synth dance style, and even more so Prince. “I don’t Fit in” is chalk-full of reverb and surreal melodies with a driving guitar line and enchanting vocals about not fitting in” A lot of Wesley’s lyrics are almost entirely about his surrounding and the mundane melancholy of living in the suburbs. Expressing tensions between comfortable appeasement, and challenging of growing up faced by suburbanite 20-somethings today. Now working on a LP keeping within the dream-pop genre but trying to do something different with a little more maturity.
