Wesley Gonzalez offers a ‘Piece of Mind’ with new video

He’s also heading out on tour this autumn.

With just days - days! - until the release of debut solo album, ‘Excellent Musician’, Wesley Gonzalez has shared a video for one of the tracks on the record, ‘Piece of Mind’.

“We arrived at the Rio Cinema at 11.30pm on a Wednesday,” he describes of the video, which features Wes and band performing at the east London venue, “full of piss and vinegar with a bag of cans. Joe, on the bass, had been working at a trendy food cart all day and was almost asleep by the time we got there - it didn’t help that it was absolutely roasting outside. I was sweating profusely, constantly dabbed down by Euan and frequently reapplying my professional make up (one base of foundation with a bit of hair conditioner, very profesh). We finished at 5am, which helped accelerate the manic performances by the end. By the time I got home my flat mates were getting ready to go to work and presumed I was on the sesh, but as some work had been involved I could easily deny it.”

He’s also confirmed details of a UK tour, beginning on 22nd October at Winchester Railway.
