Cloudy blue vinyl LP
Debut album from Kevin Whelan of The Wrens
Kevin Whelan of The Wrens releases Observatory, Aeon Station's debut record, today worldwide on December 10th, 2021. The 10-track album came together carefully for Whelan, over the course of 14 years, specifically, as clusters of demos and sketches. These were eventually assembled and recorded largely by Whelan himself, with assistance from Wrens' bandmates Jerry MacDonald and Greg Whelan, as well as Tom Beaujour in his Union City recording space. Additionally, his wife Mary Ann provided backup vocals.
Aeon Station's Observatory is an epic statement more than a decade in the making, with miles of timeless melodies and the kind of overpowering songwriting that will reaffirm your belief in life itself. Longtime Wrens member Kevin Whelan's first solo album draws heavily from the perseverance of the soul, resulting in rock music possessing an infectious and inspiring sonic uplift. If you're familiar with Whelan's past work, these 10 tracks bear a certain and unmistakable familiarity-but they also mark an exciting new chapter in Whelan's musical career, as he steps out with more vulnerability than ever before.
