Melbourne band Wellyn have inhabited the fringes of the city's live scene off and on for the past six years. Many different musicians have passed through Wellyn's halls. The album features a gigantic array of voices including Dan Kelly, Ollie Brown (Art of Fighting), Andrew Coates (Black Cab), Danny Griffith (SubAudible Hum), Ned Collette, and Chris Altmann (The Vandas). A total of 27 musicians contributed to the album. Working with local sound stalwart, Finn Keane (who has recorded for Wilco, Franz Ferdinand and Oasis) out of Hothouse Studios in St. Kilda, Wellyn's epic ideas, crafted melodies, funereal leanings, gloomy tendencies, and sparkling arrangements slowly unfolded outwards and into layer upon layer of music and month upon month of studio time. The persistence has paid off, and Wellyn's debut album, An Intimate Universe (a phrase that hints at the sounds within) will be launched in Melbourne at the Northcote Social Club on June 6th, and in Sydney at the Supper Club on June 12th. “It was the 41 part vocal harmonies that got me this morning, with Melbourne band Wellyn's song "The White House". It's an all out choral anthem, and very easily my Catch of the Day” Zan Rowe, Triple J
