New EP from We Are John Wean
We Are John Wean are four guys who write and play songs about girls, life, girls, love and girls. The band was formed in 2009, and currently is based in Glasgow.

The band is Conor Cartwright (vocals/rhythm guitar), Jude Smith (vocals/bass guitar/piano), Stuart Anderson (lead guitar), and Simon Coakley (drums), and they are from Uddingston.

I marked them as a band to follow, and nothing on offer in the EP has changed my opinion.
