Awesome Wells

Imagine, if you will, a chance meeting between Shakin' Stevens, Type O Negative and the teenaged ghost of Lauren Laverne in a Bootle social club. Shakey takes offence at Pete Steele's tasteless eye make up and starts kicking off, only to be calmed when the Fazakerley branch of the Jehovah's Witnesses turns up with the latest issue of the Watchtower featuring an exclusive interview with Cliff, the man who Shakey will never be. Awesome Wells is somewhat like this.

Artist Type: 

Vertigo

That soaring melodic tension between guitar and vocal, its bass lines, tinged with longing, and driving yet thoughtful rhythm section make Vertigo one of those rare bands whose offerings of gritty beauty and haunting intensity escape the trap of cliche and affectation. The four-piece band out of Knoxville, Tennessee, marries alt/pop lyricism and well-grounded composition with yearning themes and experimental musicianship, connecting with audiences in electric, deeply personal live performances.
