More on Weep Wave:
Weep Wave was formed in 2016 in Seattle, WA, where the band quickly became known for their lo-fi recordings, flashy shows, DIY attitude and strange noises. Weep Wave is Dylan Fuentes (Guitar/Vocals/Drums), Colton Harold (Synth/Guitar/Drums), Dylan Trujillo (Bass).
“Welcome Home” and Seasonal Affective Disorder detail the realities of living in the Emerald City. Frontman Dylan Fuentes explains it like this: “Anyone from outside the Pacific Northwest who’s spent a year here will understand the highs and lows the perpetual grey can take on someone not used to it. Compounded with being alone in a new city, S.A.D. is practically inevitable.”
