On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, alt-rock band Wesson released the song Second Chances, reflecting on the past, and hoping for a second chance in the future.
Milton Keynes based British alt-rock band Wesson is led by singer/songwriter Chris Wesson. Formed under the mutual decision to find like-minded souls who needed music as part of their everyday life, the four-piece band also features bassist Callum, guitarist Jimmy, and drummer Dale. Together, they create music which is relatable, conversational and meaningful.
Each member of Wesson comes from a different musical background, giving their music an amalgam of influences, including pop, punk rock and indie which they mix with soaring vocal parts to creat an overall sound which is entirely its own. Spreading messages of living unapologetically, the band hope to help listeners find peace and acceptance in their life.
We want to help make their troubles fade away and give them a moment of escapism from whatever it is that they are going through.-Chris Wesson
Their song Second Chances is the result of wanting to create something that was upbeat with a feel-good essence, reflecting on past experiences and ultimately realising and accepting that you cannot change the past. We have all made mistakes along the way, but the hope a ‘second chance’ sometimes drives us to change or work harder.
I’m not alone in having made mistakes along the way. So I hope this song gives some hope and comfort to those harbouring regrets and resentments, it can be a lonely place reflecting on a painful memory, hearing a song like Second Chances reminds me that I’m not alone, and that definitely helps. We’d hope it might lend itself to someone who is travelling or moving from one place to another, in the same way that their minds are moving on from dwelling on the past and celebrating that departure in their thought patterns.-Chris Wesson
Aiming for modern production on a retro styled song, “Second Chances” has one foot in the past and the other in the present. Familiar yet unique, the track is reminiscent of the likes of The Buzzcocks, The Libertines, and The Ramones, with vocal harmonies influenced by The Beatles and The Beach Boys.
Emitting a gritty rock undertone, bold melodic bass riffs and driving drum beats, WESSON delivers a soundtrack to everyday life events, touching on reflections and memories that pass them by. Their organic approach to songwriting allows their music to be honest and identifiable.
