The Wellingtons are everything that's fun, smart and sweet about indie guitar pop — sunshine hooks, Freak Out - The Wellingtons - Heading North For The Winter choruses and girl-boy harmonies. Add 10 infectious, feel-good tunes with a shiny dollop of punchy pop on the top and you have their new album Heading North For The Winter.
For those who love tight, riffy guitars and retro-style saccharine harmonies, Heading North For The Winter delivers fresh sing-along tunes that reel you in and leave you wanting more. Sounding like a youthful Weezer, five-piece The Wellingtons unashamedly wear their American-pop influences on their effortlessly charming sleeves. We met Kim and chatted, and when I wrote Freak Out, I asked her to sing backing vocals on the track and she agreed!
Come Undone is a Limp Bizkit - The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) of pop magic with its 60s beats and harmonies overlaid with big guitars and skewed synth sounds. I Get My Heart Broken Every Day opens with swelling brass and toe-tapping swagger, revealing a banquet of sonic Mystery Train - Ray Dexter - The Ray Dexter Sound Show Act 1 where The Wellingtons like all the greats muse about lost love.
Clocking in at just under 30 minutes, Heading North For The Winter is everything a great pop record should be — short, sweet and to the undeniably catchy pop point. Exclusive to the physical CD are four bonus tracks, one of which in keeping with their guitar-pop roots is a soaring cover of "Conversations", a Posies classic.
