In September, a cryptic track entitled ‘Gassed’ appeared on the end credits of popular FX comedy series ‘You’re The Worst’. Immediately after airing, ‘Gassed’ set the Shazam-sphere alight, amassing over 12,000 Shazams in record time. That highly sought-after track is from a mysterious, faceless duo called Weslee.
A fusion of pop and alternative R&B, ‘Gassed’ oozes luscious, soulful vocals layered over a mellow groove. The track is sultry and enigmatic as the lead vocalist goes on a journey of personal growth, completely encapsulating the listener. Despite their secretive identity, they’ve ignited a flame of curiosity across the blogosphere and beyond, which has led to notable support from BBC Radio 1 with Mistajam picking the track as Hottest Record, as well as support from Huw Stephens. With this first leak of music making a strong introduction to their sound, Weslee are an exciting act to watch in 2017 as they unravel more of their story.
