A. Wesley Chung: ‘Evergreen’

A. Wesley Chung continues to fly beneath the radar but soars sonically with his stunning new album Portents. Song of the Day ‘Evergreen‘ is one of its many highlights. 

Featuring the multi-talented Gillian Higgins (Skinny Dipper, CLR Theory), there is so much nostalgia that flows through and fans of Pedro the Lion, Deathcab for Cutie, Laura Veirs and more will adore this gem and indeed the full long player. 

Evergreen‘ paints a vivid landscape not only instrumentally but vocally, but its Chung’s gift of propelling a sublime tinge of sadness into everything he does means it resonates further and hits harder. The skilful weaving of its arrangement and pristine production are intelligent, fully realised and simply joyous. 

Chung is consistently one of the most underrated musical talents in Scotland and I beg you to invest in his discography. This is a solid place to start.
