We may have been too obsessed with Wet Leather’s last single IWMU, because we managed to miss out on their new EP and its latest offering I Was Wrong despite the fact that it’s been out and about for a week. But we gladly dive head first into the NYC indie band’s 80s inspired, jaunty chugging single now that it’s come to our attention. Hints of Chain Gang Of 1974′s new wave inspired alt pop and some vintage Tears For Fears adorn the song’s rambunctious rock licks and mellifluous power pop flourishes, alongside its LANY and Great Good Fine OK like satiny sheen . At the rate they’re going, Wet Leather is going to be one of the big acts to watch this year. Wet Leather’s EP, Present Lives, is out now. Grab the six track release on Bandcamp, here.
