William Fitzsimmons

Mission Bell

Groenland Records


Released: 21st Sep 2018



Released: 21st Sep 2018


chronicling the recent break-up of his marriage, his first analogue tape-centric album blends the familiar comforts of acoustic guitars with sympathetic synthesisers, electric guitars, drum loops and violins.

The sounds are raw, real and tangible. An initial version of the album was originally recorded in Fitzsimmons’ home studio in the summer of 2017 but was subsequently abandoned during the course of - and as a result of - the separation. Fitzsimmons spent a month rebuilding the lost record, with contributions from friends, including Abby Gundersen and Rosie Thomas. The resulting 11-song album tells the story of a decade-long marriage destroyed and eventually rebuilt from the ground up. Fans of Keaton Henson, bon iver, iron & wine and james Vincent mcmorrow need this in their lives.
