The band's earnest eleven track sophomore album includes the BBC 6Music supported single 'Pavements', as well as 'Softie', 'Tired II' and 'Swedish Summer'. It follows their debut LP 'Okay', which became something of an underground sensation and garnered the highest praise with comparisons to SlowdiveCigarettes After Sex and Mazzy Star. The new record is set to further cement their position as one of the most exciting bands around right now.

Wy Release Stunning Second Album, 'Softie'

& Forthcoming Sweden & UK Shows
"An alternative heartfelt confession of imperfection, love, and longing" - Atwood Magazine
"weaving atmospheric compositions and emotional lyricism" - Consequence of Sound

“a perfectly judged piece of evocative pop music” - Clash
"hard-hitting and emotionally in tune" - Highclouds
"bound for international stardom" NYLON

'Softie' is very much a statement on the turbulence of human existence, written from Ebba's experience of being bipolar. With their clarity in emotion and unapologetic use of lyrics, it's an important record in more ways than one. She explains, "'Softie' is an attempt at proving there is more than one way of being a functioning human being. The album is about coping, growing out of your fears, learning how to distance yourself from your anxieties and the ups and downs that comes with being bipolar. 'Softie' is ultimately about releasing the pressure from yourself and that's what we have been doing in the process of writing these songs. We ended up with a record that was turbulent, back and forth and non-conforming. And we love that, because it feels very 'us' and we really wanted our second album to hit you in the face rather than rock you to sleep."
Wy are longtime lovers Ebba and Michel, from Malmö in Sweden. After several years of playing in bands together, they formed this musical incarnation in 2015 and soon released their debut EP 'Never Was' (2016). Their 10-track LP 'Okay' (2018), saw them win fans at international tastemaker titles The Line of Best FitNYLONC-HeadsKALTBLUT, NBHAP and The Revue, with subsequent support in 2019 from BBC 6MusicThe 405Consequence of SoundClash and many more.
