You probably haven't heard much from emerging artist WILLS, but his new song "Woes vs. Whoas," a high-energy track off of his self-titled debut EP, will leave you desperate for more. And, luckily, more is coming –– the St. Paul-based artist's four-track EP will be released August 5 via IAMSOUND Records.
On "Woes vs. Whoas," WILLS' voice is urgent, emotive and intense. The blaring industrial instrumentation, rhythmic clapping and heavy bass pound under a thin layer of distortion on the ominous, energized beat. The eclectic record incorporates elements of R&B, rock and hip hop, and a bit of that jarring, electro abrasiveness reminiscent of Yeezus. Chris Zane, who known for working with artists such as Passion Pit and Holy Ghost, produced the EP. Listen to the track below:
WILLS recently contributed to Flume's latest project, Skin, providing vocals for "Pika" -- an album on which fellow St. Paul artist Allan Kingdom was also featured.
