Album: Reverie EP
Release Date: April 7, 2017
Five piece Calgary folk/rock outfit The Wellington Folk recently released their EP ‘Reverie’ on April 7th. Performing together since 2011, Sarah Kemmers (vocals, guitar), Clayton Dell (vocals, guitar), Mike Shareski (vocals, bass), Ian Love (drums, percussion) and Gord Allert (electric guitar) came off their writing break to bring their fans their latest effort.
The six track release starts off with “Hey Lover” shows off the harmonies in the group and gives the listener a hint of what to expect for the remainder of the EP. “In Reverie”, the title track of the EP, is one of the best off of the EP in my opinion. It shows more of the harmonies the band portrays so well and highlights their skill of writing catchy lyrics. The closing track, “What Have We Done” is one of the more fast paced songs on the EP. It gives the listener a last taste of the talent of the band, leaving them wishing the EP was longer. Six songs are not enough to fully appreciate this band.
Overall, I was intrigued by ‘Reverie EP’. I had not previously heard of the Calgary band but The Wellington Folk have won me over with these songs. Their harmonies show just how well the five mesh together, something that only comes from being together for a number of years. Fans of the band are sure to enjoy that the five are back on the music scene, and fans of the genre would most likely enjoy this new release.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
