SINGLE REVIEW: WILL VARLEY: ‘STATUES’

WV-Spirit Of Minnie - packshot - web.jpg

Will Varley has recently released ‘Statues’, the latest track to arrive from his forthcoming 5th studio album ‘Spirit Of Minnie’, released February 9, 2018 through Xtra Mile Recordings.

Soft and delicate, ‘Statues’ begins slow and light with guitar, combining sweet melody with emotive lyrics- in true Will Varley nature.

The track explores the theme of time, with lyrics “maybe time is a statue, not a river” that resonates with the listener and provokes a strong sense of nostalgia. As the track builds, the instrumentation blossoms with the fuller sound of the chorus, perfectly timed to bring you out of that nostalgia and turn this track into a reflective lullaby. A track bound to have every member of the crowds swaying along to its gentle charm.

If this track and previously released ‘All Those Stars’ are anything to go by, then this album (unlike previous albums) boasts a fuller sound that has proven, in these tracks, to really compliment his stunning rough-edged vocals and affirming song-writing.
