Wet Jeans – “The Finish Line”


“The Finish Line” is an impressive debut release from Wet Jeans, a trio out of Canton, Georgia. With playful guitars and rhythm coming into the fold early, alongside the injection of twinkling keys alongside the vocals’ emergence, the track is accessible early on. The hook – “’cause I just wanna be where you’re gonna be,” – is fun and sincerely emotive, channeling vintage power-pop with a bit of contemporary indie-rock allure in the arsenal. Although not breaking down any barriers stylistically or structurally, “The Finish Line” is a very fine piece of power-pop songwriting with a memorable chorus/hook that does its stylistic intentions proud. The melodic charisma on display is impressive for any act, and especially one just starting to release original material.
