Snailbeach, the recording project of London-based songwriter Theo Williams, releases a new single, ‘Real Life In Motion’, today ahead of an EP, Flies, out on 31st July.
Following previous work with fellow Goldsmiths University alumni DASA, BB Sway and Nijuu, Williams is now focussing on his own material; romantic indie folk and electronic soundscapes recorded to cassette at home and then shared with long-term collaborator and childhood friend Jon Murphy who is given a free hand to add whatever he feels is right for the track – field recordings, extra guitar parts, synths and samples – to transport the songs to a more experimental realm and add to their emotional heft.
We’re delighted to bring you the first listen of the track below:
