It’s Here! Wallows Release Sophomore Album, Tell Me That It’s Over!

For fans of Wallows, it’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since their last album. The craziness of the past few years aside, it seems almost unbelievable that the smash hit Are You Bored Yet?” was released way back in 2019. A follow up album to match the band’s initial success has been on the minds of Wallows listeners for a while now and their sophomore album, Tell Me That It’s Over, does not disappoint.

Released on March 25th, the new Wallows album is garnering much deserved success from fans and new listeners alike. The band recently kicked off the start of their new world tour with a performance of “Marvelous” on Jimmy Kimmel on April 1st. It may sound too good to be true, but the Tell Me That It’s Over tour will continue from April through January of 2023.

If you were a fan of the band’s debut album, “Nothing Happens,” you are in luck, because each and every track from Tell Me That It’s Over is guaranteed to get you singing along. Something new for audiences this time around is the exploration of genre. In this album there is a clear influence from 80’s pop music as well as artists ranging from Fontella Bass to The Cleaners From Venus all mixed with that signature Wallows sound. Pairing the creative genius of Wallows (Braeden Lemasters, Dylan Minnette, Cole Preston) songwriting and musicianship with 3x Grammy® award-winning producer Ariel Rechsthaid has produced an album that is as equally cohesive as it is exploratory of the group’s sound.

The second track on the album, “I Don’t Want to Talk,” with its sound reminiscent of the 1982, new wave, alternative/indie darling, “I’ll Melt with You” by Modern English, tells the story of crippling insecurity so severe that you can’t talk for fear of making a problem out of nothing. The line, “tell me that it’s over now, then I could shut this off” (which is where the album gets its name) describes the moment when it’s realized that you’ve let yourself play too far into the narrative of your own construction and you’re better off cutting ties now, before you start to completely lose sight of yourself. Lyrically, the song paints an extremely relatable story of the dangers of comparing yourself to others, but this is completely offset by the upbeat, feel-good vibes emanating from the speakers that will leave listeners spellbound.

Another highlight from this album is “Marvelous.” In the spirit of honoring other great artists, this track borrows elements from 1960’s era classic soul (think Fontella Bass’s, “Rescue Me”). With its marching rhythm, funky featured brass section, catchy melody, and clever lyrics, “Marvelous” does right by music lovers and does not disappoint. It’s a bit of a different sound for the three piece band, but it is a welcomed addition to their latest album. Hopefully they’ll dig into this sound in the future because it truly suits their vocalists.

“Have a marvelous time. I won’t get you off of my mind.”

Wallows, “Marvelous”

Just in case you weren’t convinced and needed another reason to check out this song, with warm weather fast approaching, “Marvelous” is the perfect soundtrack for laying out by the pool or to accompany long car rides along the beach.

The final track on this album, “Guitar Romantic Search Adventure” is the ultimate closer, perfectly summarizing the feelings captured by the other songs in the album. A track list that starts as a hard look into a relationship that’s reached its breaking point, “Guitar Romantic Search Adventure” wraps it all up by calling back to “I Don’t Want to Talk” hoping that this time the object of our affection will take us back and tell us that it isn’t over.

In an interview with MTV News, Braeden Lemasters stated, “bands that are willing to progress and try new things and not really let any kind of preconceived notions of what your sound is or what people think your sound is” are the ones that achieve longevity. It’s clear to see that this is only just the beginning for Wallows and their new era of music. If you haven’t yet listened to Tell Me That It’s Over, why not? It’s available now on all streaming platforms. If you absolutely fall in love (which will happen) there are still a few dates left on the ongoing world tour that haven’t sold out.
