New Jersey indie-punks Well Wisher have signed to Egghunt Records, marking the announcement with a single called ‘Need You Around’. It’s taken from a forthcoming album that’s due out in the fall. Check out the song’s accompanying video below.
“‘Need You Around’ is about fragility and the need for others’ love,” lead singer Natalie Newbold explained in a statement. “After playing a pretty isolating solo show in Jersey City, I wrote it in my head on the drive home. The song is largely for my partner and visual collaborator, Jenna Murphy. The rain was really coming down that night, just pouring, and it was sometime in late Spring; I hadn’t really eaten very much, so needless to say, my ride was a little uncomfortable. As I spiraled through the looping highways of North Jersey to get home, all I could think about was getting there, curling up in bed with Jenna, and how the whole debacle made me feel so grateful for her comfort, safety, and love.”
Well Wisher released their debut album, This Is Fine, in 2018.
