Clay From â€œ13 Reasons Whyâ€ Is in a Really Good Band IRL
Our favorite sad AF emo friend Clay Jensen from Netflixâ€™s â€œ13 Reasons Whyâ€ is in a band and itâ€™s like, actually good.
Otherwise known as Dylan Minnette IRL, he and his two friends Cole Preston and Braeden Lemasters make up the band called â€œWallows,â€ and theyâ€™ve just released their first single called â€œPleaser.â€
First of all, let us take a moment and give thanks itâ€™s not stylized as â€œWLLWSâ€ or some shitâ€¦
Despite having only one single out, their Instagram page has a shit ton of followers already and Dylanâ€™s personal Twitter is blowinâ€™ up with quite literally some of the most awesome-slash-unoriginal tweets Iâ€™ve ever seen in response to the tune. Such examples include: â€œI love you, helmetâ€ and â€œCan I have this on tape?â€
The band announced their first live performance for May 26th on Instagram on 4/20 in Los Angeles â€” andÂ by 4/21, the show was sold the fuck out. Which means, weâ€™re being relegated to listening to the one and only single over and over againâ€¦ or standing outside the venue and crying onto a sequined â€œHelmet 4Everâ€ sign.
And this means either they are super popular already, or the place seats like six people.
Some people have claimed that the song sounds like â€œYellowcardâ€ or â€œBlink 182â€ or even â€œThe Strokes,â€ but Iâ€™m gonna go ahead say itâ€™s more like David Bowieâ€™s â€œHeroesâ€ got smashed in the face with The Ramonesâ€¦ but like, in an upbeat good way.

What is the takeaway from all this? Itâ€™s that actors can actually be good at music too, and not just have a weird hobby band like Johnny Depp or Keanu.
And bonus, If you canâ€™t handle listening to the song on repeat (or maybe youâ€™re one of the Twitter followers that keeps begging for more music and posting that annoying crying emoji face one hundred times) then cry not my little emo revivalists: the band has made a Spotify playlist called â€œDriving with Wallows.â€ This eclectic mix has tunes all the way from Sky Ferreira to Childish Gambino, and will hopefully stave you over â€˜til that next single dropsâ€¦
