WELL WISHER, New Jersey https://www.wellwishernj.com/ That Weight, the latest album from New Jersey group Well Wisher, is a fiery burst of catchy, feverish punk rock that addresses the heaviness of personal trauma without being suffocated by its gravity. It is a confluence of the group’s uncentered rock influences including The Breeders and Built to Spill, in addition to songwriter Natalie Newbold’s somber acoustic favorites such as Elliott Smith and Phoebe Brigders. As the record progresses, the jumpy, visceral instrumentation emphasizes the tender introspections that Newbold’s writing weaves into these songs. The result is something both cathartic and therapeutic; art that will make you want to thrash and jump around with tears of acceptance and future growth.

Originally started as a solo project for NJ songwriter Natalie Newbold (current bassist in The Front Bottoms), Well Wisher has taken shape as a full band with Lucas Dalakian (formerly of Romp), Lynsey Vandenberg, and Matt Viani. Since the band’s inception in 2018 they have shared the stage with notable acts like Blink-182, Paramore, Manchester Orchestra, The Front Bottoms, New Found Glory, Bayside, Lucy Dacus, Deerhunter, Laura Stevenson and many, many more. Well Wisher’s long-awaited sophomore record, That Weight, is out now via Egghunt Records!
