WELSHLY ARMS “INDESTRUCTIBLE”

Cleveland based, blues and gospel influenced Alternative band, Welshly Arms debuts their latest song, “Indestructible,” today—listen and share here. The track premiered on Ones To Watch, who says, “prepare yourself for robust guitar strings and a pop-tinged chorus that thrives off of a funkified shuffle.”

Frontman Sam Getz explains the meaning behind “Indestructible,” saying “‘Indestructible’ is about being in love with someone that’s out of your league. You know they’ll never break down and fall for you, but in a way, that’s what makes you want them even more.”

“Indestructible” follows Welshly Arm’s previously released song “Sanctuary,” and both are taken from the band’s highly anticipated debut album, No Place Is Home, which is set for release on May 25th. See the full No Place Is Home tracklist below. Pre-order No Place Is Home here.
