Wellyn inhabited the fringes of Melbourne’s live scene off and on between 2003 & 2009 years, and have been described as sounding like The Polyphonic Spree developed a smack habit, stole all of Elbow's gear and pawned it off to Midlake in order to go on a massive bender with Jimmy Clinkerfield. Many different musicians have passed through Wellyn's halls, & the debut album features a gigantic array of guest vocals from the likes of Dan Kelly, Ollie Brown (Art of Fighting), Andrew Coates (Black Cab), Danny Griffith (SubAudible Hum), Ned Collette, Chris Altmann (The Vandas), and Donovan Walker.
