Weslee's stripped version of their song "Gassed" is haunting

There's not much info about artist group Weslee when you check out their SoundCloud. It says they're based in the UK and they have one song up called "Stripped" that came out 7 months ago, with around 82K plays, and only around 500 followers. 

A mysterious act with such a clean profile online and an intensely buzz worthy, eerie first single only begs for the attention of true music snoops, like us writers here at EARMILK.

This month, Weslee has offered their listeners a stripped down version of their only song. This version of "Gassed" is lovely in the sense that it brings out the emotions and intensity of the original in a more focused light. Beautiful, contemplative vocals are backed by steady piano chords, eventually culminating in a mellow blend of organic instrumentals. Honestly, "Gassed" sort of reminds me of some of the songs London Grammar has put out, not because they sound similar sonically, but more so through the mood that is created; simplicity that brings about feelings of warmth and coolness at the same time, and most poignantly a powerful sense that music can elevate human emotions to a platform that nothing else can.
