From a small town in Arkansas lies the beginnings of the alternative-rocker Jesse Wells and how his move to Nashville would blossom into the band, Welles and their new full-length album "Red Trees And White Trashes." The album was featured on NPR's "First Listen" program and the band has received comparisons to Royal Blood and Greta Van Fleet. Welles' new 11-track release begins with the Nirvana-like grunge appeal of "How Sweet It Is To Love" and the bluesy, garage rock of "Into Ashes." The band flexes their hard rock muscle with the buzzing guitars of "Codeine" and "Rock N Roll," before letting up on the guitar infused gas peddle for the acoustic ballad "Seventeen." Welles wrap up their new album with the laid back folk/rock sound of "Summer" and on last blast of rock with the intensity of "9.8."
