WILSEN wurde von der Kanadierin Tamsin Wilson während ihrer Studienzeit am Berklee College of Music in Boston gegründet, wo sie ihre Bandkollegen Drew Arndt und Johnny Simon kennengelernt hatte. Zusammen ging man nach dem Studium nach New York um die Folk-Pop-Szene im Sturm zu erobern. Nach zwei selbst-veröffentlichten EPs liegt nun endlich das Debüt Album der Band vor. Kenner und Fans von Nick Drake bis Arcade Fire werden begeistert sein!
Anglo-Canadian Tamsin Wilson founded Wilsen when she enrolled at Berklee College of Music in Boston, meeting band mates Drew Arndt and Johnny Simon. The trio relocated to New York after graduation, where they now make “spectral, towering dream-folk... songs that careen onthe edge of losing control,” (Stereogum).
First appearing on the scene with the self-released Sirens double-EP (2013) and Magnolia EP (2014). Tours with Daughter,Matthew E. White, San Fermin and shows with London Grammar soon followed. Tamsin has also lent her vocals to HONNE's ‘Coastal Love’ and a vocal line of hers is used in a SBTRKT song. I Go Missing In My Sleep is Wilsen’s debut album and was recorded with producer Ben Baptie in upstate New York and atThe Farm Studio outside of Philadelphia. Many of the songs were composed in a tiny Brooklyn apartmentin the fleeting pre-dawn moments when New York City is mostlystill. These beautifully crafted original pieces capture an almost impossible sense of delicate quietness, and when it came time to record them with the band – Drew Arndt on bass and Johnny Simon on guitar – they unfurled at a nexus of hushed and heart-racing, intimate folk paired with muscular yet restrained sonic experimentation.
