With producer Andrew Sarlo (Bon Iver, Big Thief, SASAMI) at the helm, Wilsen's new album Ruiner dissolves both the heavy reverb and ethereal moments found on their first recording by instead letting the band's essentials ' drums, bass, guitar, and vocals ' have centre stage. In the album's opening moments, you might hear a knotted wash of guitars and Wilson (Tamsin Wilson ' the singer) softly humming, for a very brief moment returning you to their dreamscape but sharply, a driving rock rhythm comes into focus and so too does a revitalised band. 'Making this record was somewhat of a coming of age process,' Wilson explains,'We're getting older and becoming more deliberate, less precious, less measured. Overthinking less and trusting instincts.'
