WL (formerly known as Well) are a trio from Portland formed by Michael Yun, Steven Nistor and Misty Mary (also keyboardist in Captured Tracks’ heroes Blouse). They currently have only a couple of demos posted on Bandcamp, but these are so promising you’d better check them out immediately.

‘Impermanent’, the most recent of WL’s tracks, is in particular a beautiful, personal ode to early-90s golden age of Loveless-era shoegaze. It’s an eternal looping ballad driven by the dark ocean of sound coming out from Yun’s percussive guitar, Mary’s lovely voice flying way higher like a seagull aiming for an uplifting sun.
