The Wutars

The Wutars are the biggest thing in Wycombe at the moment and have both the unabashed guts and disarming charm to get away with bragging about it. Taking lots of classic indie and rock and roll influences, they construct a clean sound with lots of space, rhythm, and melody.

‘Extensive Research’ has a sputtering verse that suddenly becomes a flooding chorus before transforming again into a smoky solo and pacey reprise. That’s the whole indie spectrum compressed into a single song – truly making them the single purchase musical equivalent of ‘Bold’ washing powder.

Second track, ‘A Song Will Buy You Time’, is acoustic led and supplies a beautiful string of harmonies and pleasant sunny tones that make them sound like the Midlands cousins of South Coast indie giants, The Delays.

‘Too Much Conversation’ sees an injection of pace as well as some jangling guitars into those indie veins, while the laid back vocal and matching harmonies make for an unusual deep chorus that breaks away from the obvious floating melody.

This is a quality slice of indie with plenty of nifty trimmings. The branded snack rather than the value pack.
