Wednesday are the rare band that I discovered because Spotify kept playing them right after an album I was listening to ended. No complaints, especially since I've come to adore them even before their Drive-By Truckers cover and touring with Drive-By Truckers. The Asheville, NC band have released a new single, and calling it epic is an understatement. "Bull Believer" sounds like roughly every single one of your favorite 80's and 90's artists all crammed into one of your new favorite eight and a half minute songs. It's reminding me of Sonic Youth, The Cure, Juliana Hatfield, My Bloody Valentine, Nirvana, and more, as well as newer favorites like Momma and Lady Lamb. It's this gigantic song that is as noisy as it is beautiful. This could very well be the song of the year for a lot of people.
You can watch the video for "Bull Believer" below. The song is available now via Dead Oceans. For more on Wednesday, check out the artist's website.
