Wilsen / Share New Track 'Final' + Announce Tour Dates
Wilsen – the Brooklyn trio led by singer/songwriter Tamsin Wilson – share "Final" today, the second new offering from their forthcoming debut 'I Go Missing In My Sleep,' out April 28 on Secret City/Dalliance. The song is a stripped-down meditation on loss, equipped with a riveting vocal melody and pensive, thought-provoking lyrics. "There is no reason and no rhyme / For those we love and those we bid goodbye," laments Tamsin Wilson over the group's sparse, delicate arrangement.
Wilsen's debut has been met with an abundance of early critical praise. NPR Music premiered lead single "Heavy Steps," praising the group as "a major revelation" and proclaiming Tamsin Wilson "would sound amazing in just about any genre or context." Noisey premiered the group's "Garden" music video last week: "It manages to be both soothing and disquieting. At points it sounds like it’s running backwards. Sometimes like a memory tantalizingly out of reach.”
Wilsen features Tamsin, Drew Arndt on bass and Johnny Simon on guitar. The trio burst onto the independent music scene in 2013 with the self-released double-EP ‘Sirens,’ and 2014’s EP ‘Magnolia.’ Tours with Daughter, Matthew E White, San Fermin and shows with London Grammar soon followed. Wye Oak remixed a song for the ‘Magnolia’ remix EP along with Sun Glitters, Death Vessel and White Hinterland. Tamsin has lent her vocals to Honne's "Coastal Love" single and her vocal line is used in a SBTRKT song. In 2016, the self-released singles “Garden” and ‘’Centipede'' grew quickly on streaming sites. “Garden” is now at over 2.7 million streams on Spotify while ''Centipede" is closing in on 1 million streams across platforms.
