Drifting On The Woozy Sea: William Wilson

The outfit William Wilson…a relatively mysterious project tied to an artist named Haruca Hinata…uses the lack of gloss to their advantage on the woozy “Nankai Kouro.” It is a song that is far from professionally recorded, but one that also doesn’t sound amateurish – an analog haze hovers over the whole song, yet William Wilson constructs a focused number anchored by female vocals and guitar strums that eventually sound like seagulls screeching off in the distance. It’s an entrancing number…before you focus on the lyrics, about sea exploration…that shows an artist using limitations to their advantage. Listen below.
