Well Wisher

Asbury Park, NJ

From the opening notes of Well Wisher's debut full length This is Fine it's clear the band are not afraid to brandish mighty guitar riffage front and center. In fact they tiptoe perfectly between sounds that on hasty assessment could be classified singularly as punk alternative or even pop rock; yet they seem to draw only the best elements of each avoiding the less desirable pitfalls associated with these genres. The resulting sound is ambitious and raw dynamic and powerful. Some of that power is owed to the deep current of lyrical content flowing just below the surface of seemingly happy hook-laden tunes. This potent recipe has earned Well Wisher a reputation as one of the most-promising new bands to arise from the New Jersey DIY scene. Originally started as a solo project for Newbold Well Wisher has taken shape as a full band touring frequently despite their relative newness. They have already shared the stage with Manchester Orchestra, The Front Bottoms, New Found Glory, Remo Drive, The Movielife, Blis, Thin Lips, Kississippi and many more and plan to continue touring extensively throughout 2019.

Creating a plethora of songs to inspire others to take control of their own lives, This Is Fine is packed with personal pleas and crunchy guitars, a real treat to indie-pop lovers alike.
