AOTY - Willie J Healy

Fresh from his major label debut, Willie J Healey’s sophomore offering on Yala! Records sees the former boxer offer up lyrical buoyancy and wit in abundance. Recorded to tape, it moves between psychedelic nostalgia and guitar work that channels both country twang and echoes of surf in abundance, with a healthy dose of Beatles influences thrown in for good measure. A record that’s prepared to have you falling head over heels, whether it’s the guitar solo on coming of age or the slow-burn of the title track, we’re sure to be talking about this as a modern classic in no time at all. It cements Healey as a future guitar hero.
