Fresh from the release of Wilsen’s latest album Ruiner earlier this year, vocalist and guitarist Tamsin Wilson has teamed-up with dream-pop outfit Mt. Wolf as part of their new collaborative EP project.
‘Tayrona’ is Mt. Wolf’s first release after taking a musical hiatus for the past few years. Take a listen below…
New single ‘Tayrona’ features a mellifluous guitar melody that lulls you into peaceful thoughts as Tamsin’s voice takes center stage. It will be released as part of a Mt. Wolf collaborative EP via Akira Records.
Talking of the collaboration, Tamsin says: “The instrumental track lead me to think of sun glitter, setting the tone for a contemplative coastal story of a relationship that ended as quickly as it began. The vocals were inspired by a phrase I overheard, “Staying together was meant to be easy.” Equally earnest, melancholy, and accepting.”
Mt. Wolf released their debut album Aetherlight in 2017. A headline tour followed in UK, Europe and America with notable shows at Scala in London and The Knitting Factory in New York – where in fact the band first met Tamsin from Wilsen.
Wilsen are a trio comprised of Tamsin Wilson (guitar / vocals), Johnny Simon Jr. (guitar) and Drew Arndt (bass). Partnering with in-demand producer Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver, SASAMI) and mastering engineer Sarah Register (Ariana Grande, Protomartyr, U.S. Girls) to record Ruiner, the follow-up to their debut album, I Go Missing In My Sleep.
Wilsen’s previously-announced North American spring support tour with Poliça and Tamsin’s solo UK & European support tour with Black Belt Eagle Scout are due to be rescheduled for later in 2020. More news asap.
