WILSEN – Magnolia
aaamusic | On 08, May 2014
‘Magnolia’ is the debut single and title name of Wilsen’s EP, which is due for release on May 19. Developed in Brooklyn, NYC, Wilsen is the collaboration between London native Tasmin Wilson, Johnny Simon Jr and Drew Arndt, the last two songwriters and producers, who set out to create perfectly crafted songs with depth and ambience, ‘Magnolia’ not being an exception. The intro is a light build up of hazy guitar strings and subtle drumming, which mellows out introducing front woman Wilson’s delicate and breathy vocals. This is complemented and under-layed by hauntingly beautiful piano, which intertwines throughout the song creating a sublime atmosphere that is ethereal and languid, in relation to the lyrics as well. Notably a well produced and thought-out track, it is only a matter of time before people start to pay real attention to this trio, which may coincide with their first London show at The Slaughtered Lamb on May 6 and two shows at The Great Escape Festival May 8 and 10.
