Wishy Announces Third Single ‘Sick Sweet’ Ahead of Highly Anticipated Debut LP ‘Triple Seven’

Wishy, sick sweet

In just over a month, Wishy will release their debut LP, *Triple Seven*, an album poised to be one of the year’s most anticipated debuts. Following their 2023 *Paradise* EP, which garnered critical acclaim from outlets like Pitchfork, the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Stereogum, the album (out August 16th on Winspear) has already spawned two singles, “Love On The Outside” and the title track “Triple Seven,” both receiving high praise from the press.

In June, the band announced an extensive fall tour across the US, UK, and EU, featuring dates with American Football and Guided By Voices, as well as appearances at Pitchfork London and Hopscotch. Today, they are sharing a third single from their LP, a track titled “Sick Sweet.”

Triple Seven is a vibrant blend of alternative music history, featuring elements of shoegaze, grunge, and power-pop. While their debut EP leaned heavily into dream pop and shoegaze, band leaders Kevin Krauter and Nina Pitchkites aimed for a louder, more aggressive, and fun sound on their LP, Wishy. This evolution is evident in the dynamic alt rock track “Sick Sweet,” their heaviest release yet, which strikes a balance between raucous energy and Krauter’s penchant for blissfully hazy melodic pop.

Krauter explains:

“This song is about wanting something or someone despite doubts or misgivings, and laying it all on the line to see it through. I was inspired by an Oasis interview where Liam Gallagher talked about his lyrics being about ‘just living life’ and ‘just going for it.’ That’s the energy I put into this song.”

The track is accompanied by a music video directed by Nate Kahn, who captured vignettes of the band during their recent tour with Narrow Head, including their off day at the beach in Florida.
