Wednesday - WXPN
Where They’re From:
Who They Are:
This North Carolina five-piece cycles through a range of genres, with some songs dipping into fuzzy noise rock fit for a battered 90’s skateboarder while others are perfect for a melodramatic window seat train ride home, complete with emotionally drained vocal cries and wobbly Americana guitar melodies. The band, fronted by vocalist and guitarist Karly Hartzman, have poured every ounce of themselves into the project since debuting in 2018. This commitment is immediately evident in their music: Without fail, Wednesday has released at least 1 album a year since 2020, with their most recent record, 2023’s Rat Saw God, being praised by fans and critics alike, earning an 8.8/10 on Pitchfork’s Best New Music chart.
The group sold out Union Transfer in support of Rat Saw God as part of their summer 2023 U.S tour, with European touring on their calendar for the year as well, and a slot on the 2023 XPoNential Music Festival.
