"It's pretty hard to know what people are writing about you when your band's name is Wet."

It's a curious admission - one that spills sluggishly from the mouth of Martin Sulkow - but makes perfect sense when you think about it. Wet simply don't suspect the intense scrutiny that they are currently subjected to from countless online publications (us, included) because, well, they can't face navigating the inevitable lurid minefield of cyberspace that rears itself upon feeling somewhat inquisitive.

Sulkow is only one third of Wet, sharing rhythm duties with Joe Valle and effortlessly reinforcing the spine-tingling purr of vocalist Kelly Zutrau. "It wasn't until after college when Kelly was living in Providence, RI and Joe in L.A. that we started collaborating on the recordings that would eventually become Wet," Martin recalls. "It was a casual project and I don't think it was really on the forefront of everyone's mind when Kelly and Joe decided to return to Brooklyn. When they first moved back, they were sharing a tiny room in my apartment to save on rent. Living together really gave us the opportunity to work on music all the time. We started playing shows and putting out digital releases as Wet a little over a year ago now."

It's been a productive twelve months, to say the least, which has finally yielded the trio's debut self-titled EP, a clutch of hushed, minimalistic offcuts that are as heart-wrenchingly fragile, as they are peculiarly danceable. 'No Lie', in particular, is an affirming closer, Zutrau's delicate vocal soaring gloriously over a handful of sparse beats. Unsurprisingly, when pushed on his feelings towards the finished product, Martin replies with a simple, quietly confident "yes."

It's intriguing to note how the EP's musical direction came to fruition, despite Sulkow remaining somewhat vague when discussing Wet's primary influences. "We definitely have differing tastes in music, but we spend so much time together that we end up listening to a lot of stuff together." Aspects of Wet's winning formula, however, could be hinted at by what he adds next: "I think what appealed to us about working with each other was less about being interested in the same music, and more about sharing a broader sensibility about music and art. That said, there are certainly artists and producers who all three of us love and talk about and follow devotedly."

Despite remarkable levels of expectancy, Wet seem to be thriving under pressure, infecting our eardrums with a sumptuous groove beyond their years and providing those who believe them to be just a name with a swift, dazzling punch to the mouth. Their debut release, the deliciously subtle Wet EP, will do little to prevent your juices from gushing, either. Bring tissues.
