Wilsen is the creation of 24-year-old London native Tamsin Wilson. Alongside bandmates Johnny Simon Jr and Drew Arndt – both songwriters & producers in their own right – Tamsin Wilson’s passion is for the detail; each Wilsen song is tirelessly sculpted over time, building an atmosphere, a mood, a state of mind. Simon Jr’s minimalist guitar melodies and Arndt’s rhythmic basslines create a platform for the gossamer vocals of Tamsin Wilson, by turns ethereal and earthy, and the rich driving force behind Wilsen’s gentle rise. A self-recorded – over a week in rural Ontario – and self-released mini debut album ‘Sirens’ coincided with the trio’s decision to relocate to New York in the spring of 2012. The album showcased the warmth of Tamsin’s voice and a songwriting palette that moved between post-rock crescendos (‘Anahita’) and gentle folk intimacy (‘Dusk’).
The new ‘Magnolia’ EP will be released on the 19th of May .
