WILSEN – “”Heavy Steps”

At SXSW a couple years back, Tamsin Wilson was a huge revelation gaining plaudits everywhere, a singer whose moody, calmly dreamy voice would sound amazing in just about any genre or context. Not surprisingly, that voice has since popped up all over the place, from Wye Oak to Honne plus a sample in a SBTRKT track . Still, it turns out Wilson is also ideally suited as a bandleader specifically as the singer in the band Wilsen , the group that (sort of) bears her name. Wilsen has already toured as an opener for its kindred spirits Daughter, but in 2017 the band ought to make it a headliner in its own right.

A Londoner now based in Brooklyn, Wilson sets her warm, approachable vocals against a spare but sparkling arrangement in the first single from Wilsen’s full-length debut, I Go Missing In My Sleep. “Heavy Steps” is elegant but never overbearing, with a piano and strings employed to subtly soothing effect. Wilson describes the softly intoxicating song as “a reminder to look ahead, because sometimes it’s all too easy to do the opposite.”

“Heavy Steps”’ by Wilsen, from new album “I Go Missing In My Sleep”. Pre-order: http://smarturl.it/IGMIMS_ALL Released 28th April 2017 on Secret City/Dalliance.
