Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
On their captivating self-titled debut LP, Philadelphia, PA's Weller explores how both positive and negative reminders of the past are often tied into everyday encounters. Regardless of how devastating and abrupt these moments are, they often serve as a source of continual motivation and existential validation. Drawing from difficult family situations, long commutes, and persistent pressure to conform to a 9-to-5 with benefits, the 20-something uncertainty illustrated in these ten intimate, hook-driven songs are what turned hundreds of iPhone voice memos into the poignant and personified Weller.
Weller began as the solo project of songwriter Harrison Nantz, who after graduating college, opted to exit comfort zones and move to an unfamiliar city. In Philly, Nantz befriended bassist Evan Clark Moorehead and drummer Jeremy Berkin who eventually joined the burgeoning project at the start of 2016. Citing creative influences such as Death Cab for Cutie, Counting Crows and Radiator Hospital, Weller released their debut EP, Career Fair, followed by tours throughout the Northeast and Midwest. The trio's follow-up - a split with Pittsburgh's Rue, transpired into regular touring cycles throughout 2017, including a recent U.S. tour with Kississippi.
