Westerman - Ark

A deep breath away from the chaos of everyday life.

Westerman - Ark

Through a handful of 2018 singles, Will Westerman has shown himself to be a songwriter with the ability to project an oasis of calm onto listeners, championing patience and vulnerability. This continues in earnest on new EP ‘Ark’, his most accomplished work to date. Helmed by single ‘Albatross’, a gorgeous escape into a calmer, more sure-footed state of mind, the EP twists the singer-songwriter rulebook in gorgeous new directions, assisted by subtle but affecting production from Bullion. The excellent ‘Outside Sublime’ champions self-acceptance (“Be what you want, I’ll always be your champion,” he repeats) and ‘Ark’ serves as a deep breath away from the chaos of everyday life from one of the most compelling new artists around.
