Van William

Van William’s bleeding heart may be eternally affixed to his sleeve, but very few songwriters can make the therapeutics sound so fun. Known for the meticulous alt-pop song craft of his former acclaimed indie outfits, Port O’Brien and WATERS, Van is now working solo. His songs about the pain and disillusionment of lost love, have a dark, messy edge whilst his consistently dazzling melodies and stirring choruses carry his emotional subject matter to striking affect.

NEW VIDEO! "Before I Found You" is about that earth-shattering drug-like love-buzz you experience at the beginning of falling for someone. It's chaotic and intoxicating, but you know it has to end. I always thought the characters of Sailor and Lula in David Lynch's turbulent masterwork 'Wild At Heart' reflected that dynamic, so I wanted this video to mirror their aesthetic. I also knew I wanted the Spanish artist Silvia Grav (@silviagrav) to direct, as her style or work can reveal the complexities in seemingly glossy subjects, such as young love. Starring @caitlingerard. Watch it. Share it. Thank you for listening.
