Been enjoying the music of Will Marsh since I was first introduced to it. His 2018 release, Popular Fiction, was one of my favorites of 2018. Like Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest, Marsh is now starting to turn his project into a proper band and I’m here for it. Read below for some info from the PR team.

“I wrote these songs at the beginning of a strange period in my life­­––marked in equal parts by graduation, the election of our new president, the end of a relationship, and the fulfillment of my lifelong dream to record a studio album. Reality was shaken and the range of possibilities was shifting. Like A Shadow, and especially its single of the same name, is about the struggle to move forward into a world that seems both infinitely precarious and abundant. It’s EP on aftermath, written through a mixture of fear, melancholy, and lust for life.

While I had the same studio team as Popular Fiction­­­, this is the first time I’ve recorded with the folks I also tour with. I wasn’t experimenting with college friends, or nailing it down with hired guns, but playing in my own band. We were able to evoke the grittier lyrical themes with our weathered camaraderie and live energy. On that note, this is also the first release that I’ve personally mixed and which features a track produced and performed entirely on my own, “Turn.” The first three were tracked on the summer solstice and “Turn” was recorded during a winter writing retreat as the EP’s capstone. It concludes the turmoil and nostalgia with a final decision to keep on turning––as an artist and an individual.”
