Memory – The Wits

It’s difficult to believe that “Memory” by Scottish band The Wits is their debut release. Hailing from just outside of Glasgow, the single shows a maturity beyond the band’s years and is reminiscent of late ‘90s indie (think The Libertines crossed with Cast) with a memorable chorus and guitar break.

When asked about “Memory” the band commented “This was the third song we wrote, and we instantly knew that it should be our first song to be recorded. First came the chords and lyrics then it just quickly developed. We got to recording it in April at soundshape studios, coming up with the bridge on that day which made the song far more interesting”

We featured “Memory” on a recent playlist and you can also check it out below:

The Wits are Seanpaul Fabiani (Vocals), Seán Green (Rhythm Guitar and Backup Vocals), Gabriel McNelis (Lead Guitar), Jude McNelis (Bass Guitar) and Adrian Woodside (Drums). They formed the band while at school and slowly formed a steady lineup. Their influences include Fontaines DC, Echo and the Bunnymen, Lovejoy, Jacob Collier, Led Zeppelin, Inhaler and Roxy Music. Recent support slots have included shows with Kyle Falconer and Spyres.
