Willie J Healey - Twin Heavy

Pressed on clear vinyl. (love record stores edition)


Twin Heavy was recorded in a couple of wildly productive weeks at Echo Zoo Studios in Eastbourne with producer Loren Humphries (Florence And The Machine, Last Shadow Puppets, Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala). It was a hard collection to land on because Willie has a habit of writing a new song every week, almost always an evolution and improvement on the last. It’s not a bad problem to have but something as a label you have to be mindful of when contextualising a piece of his work. We eventually settled on a selection and the band recorded straight to tape. The life and simultaneous naivety and nous captured in this have really made us feel like we’re sitting on a special little secret ever since we first heard it.
