Wells is an Australian alt-rock quartet.
From their début EP The Pale King, Shepherd is a track showered with dark clouds as Wells put out for discovery their brooding melodies which envelop the listener in a sadness. The five and a bit minute track is well paced, allowing the spaces to define the sentiments.
Shepherd, for all its brooding leaves the listener feeling strangely comforted as Wells craft a track that holds light under the pall. The execution is top rate with the emotional pips being squeezed without tipping over into sentimentality, the building tempo and spacing mid-way through gives the music a shifting organic embodiment that makes an immediate second play a requirement.
