Streetlight Records

William The Conqueror's fourth album finds the indie-rock trio†firing on†all cylinders as frontman Ruarri Joseph confronts the thin line†between creativity and madness, inspired by compassion for the†real-life angels of the world.

Produced by the band in a playground of vintage gear and mixed by†Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, Sam Fender, Kasabian), the resulting†album's ten tracks marry earworm tunes with insistent, imperious,†soaring rock shapes, punctuated by chorus hooks that are†simultaneously nuanced and anthemic.

Joseph's compelling semi-spoken vocals and swamp-blues-Seattle-scuzz guitars are propelled by the rhythm section of Naomi Holmes†(bass) and Harry Harding (drums) as Excuse Me While I Vanishdelivers†an effortlessly winning blend of melody and ensemble dynamics, the†most accomplished and undeniable William The Conqueror album to†date.
