The first offering from indie folk band Sweetbreads is a decadent and emotional ode to the aimless voyagers of the world.

Based in Brooklyn, Sweetbreads fosters a collaboration between singer-songwriter Melody Stolpp and musician Nick Watt. Together, along with an ever-changing backing personnel, the group has created a breakout single that’s sure to perk the ears of country and indie listeners alike.

Made amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Sweetbreads’ debut single, “Wanderer”, was created completely in quarantine; each of the four band members recorded their parts separately from their respective lonely urban apartments.

But you could never tell by the end result, which is so dynamic and lively that you could swear the band was together in a recording studio. The guitar work evokes a country twang while cinematic synthesizers and Stolpp’s powerful, melodic vocals keep the track grounded to a strong indie rock identity.

Lively drum fills and colorful guitar licks showcase the group’s control as experienced musicians, and each instrumental voice fits perfectly in the track’s controlled swirls of emotion. “Wanderer” was written by frontwoman Stolpp during a move to Georgia, an experience that is reflected in the track’s lyrics of lone travelers and weary feet.
