WUT (2022)

Vancouver, BC

A pop-punk band with addictively melodic bass lines, Vancouver trio WUT makes socially conscious/anti-capitalist ditties about things like gentrification, prohibitive housing prices and unsafe work conditions. It’s frankly shocking that the songs manage to be so damn catchy when they deal directly with life’s bummers. True to form, the band released a visual album in the midst of the pandemic, a collection full of bright colours, beaches and drag makeup.
