The Wellermen, the supergroup of bass vocalists who were discovered during the viral Sea Shanty trend, deliver their latest single, ‘Drunken Sailor’.
The consistent thudding beat throughout ‘Drunken Sailor’, combines perfectly with the lads’ harmonies to create a track that can build and is perfect for sport settings, be it pre-match in stadiums or for collective fan chants on a match-day.
Hailing from both the UK & US, The Wellermen is made up of members Bobby Waters, Jonny Stewart, Luke Taylor and Sam Pope, all whose lives were changed when they dueted with a seemingly innocuous “Sea Shanty”, ‘Wellerman’, on TikTok.
Listen to ‘Drunken Sailor’ by The Wellermen on the Shoot Music New Releases Playlist on Spotify.
Since the release of the now ubiquitous TikTok, it’s been viewed over 10 million times across multiple platforms and continents, and has seen The Wellermen appear at events like The Brits, shows like Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Take Away, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver and The Colbert Show.
‘Drunken Sailor’ is the latest single from the group and follows the release of ‘One More Pull’ a traditional Maritime shanty that saw them team up with folk veterans The Longest Johns. It was also the first taste of a soon to be announced album from The Wellermen.
