With the follow-up to the stellar ‘Postcards From Ursa Minor’ (an album that propelled Will into unexplored territory, return tours with The Proclaimers and unbelievable summer festival sets) he continues to build upon broken spirits with this set of almost unbearably raw songs.

Recorded underneath a pub by the sea in Deal, Kent as the waves roared outside, ‘Kingsdown Sundown’ is a bleak and uncompromising critique of the human condition, journeying deep into our dreams, faults, regrets and politics. The songs are more visceral and uneasy than before, with fights in KFC descending into world wars, the all too real plight of refugees and the recent rise in hate crime. The rest of the album is hazier, more spectral and a phantom of memories, dreams, and hopes. “Comparable to the likes of Bon Iver and Ben Howard, the melodic sounds of this masterpiece creates a dreamy, floating sensation…(a) remarkable album” 4.5/5 – Vulture Hound
