Wilsen are Tamsin Wilson (guitar/vocals), Johnny Simon (guitar) and Drew Arndt (bass). They release their new album, 'Ruiner', on 21st February 2020.
As Tamsin Wilson explains, "'Ruiner' is about meeting your various inner selves and a promise to be better. It was written after a moment of self-sabotage and I wanted to address the inner monster who was responsible."
The album was produced by Andrew Sarlo, who has been praised for his production work on Big Thief’s entire catalogue and Bon Iver’s i.i, and mastered by Sarah Register, who has worked with artists as diverse as Ariana Grande, Protomartyr and U.S. Girls.
'Ruiner' dissolves both the heavy reverb and ethereal moments found on Wilsen’s first recording by instead letting the band’s essentials - drums, bass, guitar and vocals - have centre stage. In the album’s opening moments you might hear a knotted wash of guitars and Wilson softly humming, for a brief moment returning you to their dreamscape, but then, sharply, a driving rock rhythm comes into focus and so, too, does a revitalised band. While Wilsen have retained elements of their fragility, on 'Ruiner' they use bolder sounds and play with gritty textures and jarring grooves. See 'Birds II', which centres on a piercing guitar line or the crunchy 'Down', which is powered by a riotous percussion section. Wilsen are moving with purpose towards something, not away from it.
