Heading North for the Winter
- Artist: Wellingtons
- Format: CD
- Release Date:12/24/2008
UK IMPORT with 4 exclusive bonus tracks! For those who lap up tight, riffy guitars and retro-style saccharine harmonies, The Wellingtons deliver - fresh melodies that reel you in and leave you wanting more. Sounding like a youthful Weezer, five-piece The Wellingtons unashamedly wear their American-pop influences on their charming sleeves. With Stateside ambitions mixing it up with twee-pop sensibilities, it's little wonder The Wellingtons already have a track on US TV show "How I Met Your Mother". The Wellingtons do Aussie powerpop with style. The album boasts a fan dedication to Kim Shattuck, lead singer of mid-90s SubPop band The Muffs, on 'Song For Kim', and then has Kim singing backing vocals on Freak Out! The album motors along at a jaunty pace, hooking you in with their fun lyrics and breezy style. This album definitely deserves to become an iPod playlist favourite. *Check out the LIMITED EDITION 7' vinyl double A-side of Song For Kim/Freak Out!
