Baeble First Play: The Gorgeous But Raw Energy of Jaeger Wells
  • FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 06, 2015

One of the most fulfilling parts of being a music fan is getting in touch with the limitless depths of "genre." We've interviewed an absurd number of artists over the years, and it's always interesting how many refer to "genre" as being limiting. It seems like it should be the opposite. Genre is a massive pool of legos that you can rearrange and mix and match, and if you're particularly adept, you can draw from multiple pools at once. And on his track, "Sao Paulo Liars Club," Texas singer-songwriter Jaeger Wells blends the best of piano-driven pop with the raw vocal energy of punk.

"Sao Paulo Liars Club" is a must jam for any fans of Jack's Mannequin or Say Anything. It fuses pulsating but twinkling piano lines with heavy lyrical themes sang in an upbeat but ragged tone. With so many artists today trying so desperately to polish their sound to the point it loses all identity, Jaeger Wells has crafted a track that allows his personality and a gorgeous melody to shine through. We just wish more artists today could remember that.

You can pre-order Wells' upcoming EP, Fever Dream Anthology, due out on Nov. 20th on iTunes here.
