Introducing... John Wean

Scottish 4-piece John Wean’s new single 'New York Doesn’t Love You’ is released on 16 April 2012 on The Dinky Record Company, and was mixed by Grammy® winner Tom Lord-Alge.

The Scottish band travelled to Manhattan to shoot the video for the single (coming soon) and are currently putting the finishing touches to the forthcoming debut album with producer Ewan Davies – the man behind debuts from Arctic Monkeys, The Darkness and Editors.

Hailed as “the best thing to come out of Uddingston since the Tunnock’s Tea Cake” and as one of the “Tips For 2012” in the Scottish Sun, John Wean swagger into 2012 with all guns blazing and recently took part in Live Nation’s Live Connection initiative.

The track is based on a modern-day true story:

‘Boy sees girl from afar, boy stalks girl on Facebook, realizes she’s got a boyfriend already but, undaunted, moves his stalking over to another platform and is confronted by the Twitter name that inspired the single ‘New York Doesn’t Love You”’. Taking this as the signal to stop, boy logs off rapidly and writes a slamming guitar-pop track instead! The girl still doesn’t know that one of John Wean has a crush on her. Still, what are the chances of her finding out?

No strangers to the live circuit – with shows on both sides of the border in the last few weeks – or indeed the airwaves, John Wean are on a mission. The line up of Conor Cartwright [vocals / guitar], Stuart Anderson [guitar], Jude Smith [vocals / bass] and Simon Coakley [drums] are here to stay. Unless the girl’s boyfriend catches up with them.

Upcoming shows:
March 22 - Hootonanny, Inverness
