Product Type: 7-INCH SINGLE

The Wellingtons are everything that's fun, smart quirky about indie guitar pop - sunshine hooks, big choruses and girl-boy harmonies. Take two infectious, feel-good tunes, add a shiny dollop of punchy pop on the top and you have their debut vinyl double-A side single Song For Kim/Freak Out. Tight, riffy guitars and retro-style saccharine harmonies will reel you in. Sounding like a youthful Weezer, the five-piece wear their American-pop influences on their sleeves with these perfect (almost) two-minute pop songs. The double A-side vinyl single features the effervescent Freak Out and the sparkling Song For Kim - a stomping slice of guitar driven glee written as a fan dedication to Kim Shattuck, lead singer of mid-90s SubPop band The Muffs. "I've been an enormous fan of The Muffs for a long time," says lead singer Zac, "and while on tour in America last year, we actually got to support them at a festival. We met and chatted, and when I wrote Freak Out, I asked Kim to sing backing vocals on the track and she agreed!" So with one side dedicated to indie fandom and the other featuring the very same object of desire, it's an odd, but good twist of fate. Only physically available on numbered 500-copy limited-edition 7" vinyl, every copy of Song For Kim/Freak Out includes a handmade-by-the-band screen-printed insert. Don't miss out! If you like what you hear, check out their album Heading North For The Winter!
