Devon Williams Returns with In Babylon
Devon Williams hasn’t been around since 2014’s Gilding the Lily, which, for me, felt like he had mastered his own brand of pop songwriting. But, he’s back today with news of a new LP, A Tear in the Fabric. The song’s success revolves around two distinctive sounds; one part is driven by synths and bass, bouncing the track; the other part is the way the guitars jangle and bend their notes, swirling about to match up with the pitch of William’s voice. I really like the way Devon leaves all sorts of space in this song, like the brief interlude that follows 2:12-2:28; it really sort of builds this other-worldly dreamland that’s not too far form where he left off in 2014. His new LP drops on May 1st via Slumberland Records.
