The Wellingtons are back. And despite embarking on their 14th year together, the Australian’s are determined to prove that they can still deliver the pop (feel) goods. The new album “End of the Summer”, comes six years after their last studio album (In Transit, 2011). After extensive touring in Europe, USA & Japan to support the album and following EP, Hey Hey, The Wellingtons spent some time settling down before heading back into the studio.
End of the Summer may contain a few more songs about settling down (No Way This Could Fail/So Easy), and childhood nostalgia (End of The Summer/1963), but the production is un-mistakenly familiar (with the lyrics delivered with their signature hint of bleakness).
Layered male/female harmonies, sweeping melodies and intricate instrumentation, once again create an instantly memorable pop bliss that they're renown for.
