Old School heavy rock band WISHING WELL from Helsinki, Finland, have released the other side of their double single, titled “Dogs Bark But The Caravan Rolls On”. The hard rocking song rolls on with an irresistible groove from the opening riff until the closing bass outro. The song introduces new vocalist Pepe Tamminen, who’s voice fits like a glove in Wishing Well’s overall sound, made of classic, distorted Marshall-Hammond combination with some extra spice from acoustic guitar and piano. The song was recorded and the video was shot in E-studios, Sipoo, at the end of March together with “Flying Finn” instrumental, the other side of the double single. The sessions were engineered and the video was shot by their trusted man Henrik Sirelä, who has worked on all Wishing Well’s albums.
“We wrote the song seriously tongue in cheek and the idea is to have faith on what you do and for the future. The point is to do your own thing, no matter what’s going on around you or what other people say, no matter how hard it may sometimes be”, says Anssi Korkiakoski, the guitar player and leader of the band. “We are most certainly not the most skillful or fashionable band out there and our timing is 40 years wrong, still we keep going with our heads up in the clouds and feet down on the ground, standing on our toes”, he says.
“Bands come and go but we have our little thing and we hang on to what we’ve got because we love what we do. We don’t swing for the fences but we have our natural standards and each new song is a home run for us. We follow our path though it’s sometimes a rocky ride”, says Arto Teppo, the nestor of the band whose roaring Hammond organ is quintessential part of Wishing Well’s sound. “It’s all about the journey, not the destination”, he says.
