Wet Future on their newest single and upcoming Lucky Bar performance

Wet Future is a band with a bright future. The Victoria foursome is enjoying some momentum off the January release of its debut album Under the Weather, playing festival gigs, opening for established bands, and landing a spot on a popular Spotify playlist that has seen their track “Nothing” getting serious play. 

Formed years ago, the band has cycled through names and members before solidifying their lineup with Sean Lyons as lead singer, Lucas Bosma as lead guitarist, Miles Mclaren on bass, and Brett Attig on drums.

Having played in various bands and genres over the years, Lyons says each group member brings a different set of influences—from The Beatles to John Mayer, to punk—to inform their pop-rock sound.

Lyons first met lead guitarist Bosma while in high school in Port Alberni, and he says music was a positive outlet for their teenage angst. 

“Music really became this grounding point that helped us come together and channel our mischief in the most advantageous way,” said Lyons. “It makes us happy, we get to be ourselves and be a little goofy.”

They eventually relocated to the south Island, and they’ve been embraced by the music scene here. In 2021, after having released just one song, Wet Future received some early radio station acclaim when the Zone 91.3 selected it as Band of the Month. 

The ball has continued to roll with the release of their first album and they’re already gearing up for a second output.

Their latest track “Mona Lisa” offers a taste of what’s to come on their sophomore album, which is currently under construction while they narrow down tracks to record. 

“I’ve recorded hundreds of song ideas per year, but this one just kind of was stuck in my head,” said Lyons, who fixated on the line “Mona Lisa, what you thinking.”

Having little knowledge of the painting, he decided to do some research, which is where he stumbled across the infamous 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre, sparking the idea for the quirky music video that offers a modern twist on the theft.   

This track and more can be heard this weekend as the band performs around the Island, including a set at Lucky Bar on Friday, with Base Collective and Darrien Gerard on the bill.

Lyons calls the show a reunion of sorts, as both acts performed this past summer at Laketown Shakedown. 

Lucky Bar is a favourite venue for the band—”the sound guy is kickass” according to Lyons—making it that much more exciting that the show is nearly sold out.
