Clint Wilson is set to release his new album ‘Dark Water’ on the 3rd of October. Drawing influence from the likes of Johnny Cash and Paul Kelly, Alt Country artist Clint Wilson delivers a heartfelt and beguiling experience with his newest album release ‘Dark Water’.Driven by a wish to transpose the context surrounding real life into his music, ‘Dark Water’ is injected with a feeling of authenticity that in turn makes it easily relatable. Backed by the superlative production work of Callum Barter, Dark Water provides a series of distinct conversational stories whilst remaining a captivating listening experience.
‘Dark Water’ submerges you in lush alternative country with peppy warm tones flowing over soft percussion and dynamic vocals. ‘Dream You Were Leaving’, ‘The River Spoke To Me’, (which was co written with Kelly Brouhaha and tells a tale of lost youth) and ‘Nothin’ To Lose’ gently introduce us to Wilson’s sound with lonesome guitar twangs and steady drum thuds. He meanders through heart warming and joyous uplifting tones while using his instrumental backdrop to lament and strike our very soul.The melodious ‘Odd Socks’, ‘Fifteen Years‘ and ‘Thin Line’ showcases the brighter side to Wilson’s sound. A zesty guitar hops and springs through a buoyant beat and lush backing vocals while Wilson coos throughout with a lively harmonica feature in ‘Thin Line’ blasting glorious rays of sunshine into the album. Using soft blues toned acoustic guitar over strong back beat grooves Wilson charms and soothes his way into your ears. From the steam train pace of ‘If I Die Before I’m Twenty’ to the western- esque ‘Three Nights In El Paso’ Wilson displays his versatile songwriting- telling gripping stories all the way through these dynamic tunes. Wilson knows exactly where to place every instrument and melody- this is perfectly shown through ‘Get Out Of The Wind’. Those lush backing vocals spread over beautiful guitar pines make for an enthralling listening experience with the perfect sway along backdrop to lull you into a stupor. ‘I Saw The Lightning’ closes the album encompassing all the gems of the previous tracks with dark tones haunting between deep vocals and immaculate harmonies.
Clint Wilson shows his depth and meticulous musicianship through ‘Dark Water’ to create a beguiling alternative country collection of tracks.
