Cornwall trio William The Conqueror have recently released their new single Move On, from their forthcoming third album Maverick Thinker, out on March 5th via Chrysalis Records.
“I found the riff and the hook on an old Dictaphone recording of a soundcheck,” says frontman Ruarri Joseph of the track. “The guys are jamming along and it sounds fully formed, then it cuts off and we do something else. I’d forgotten all about it, so it was perfect for a song about piecing memories together.”
Tackling themes of restlessness, Move On is marked by these scuffed guitar lines, splashes of organ, and a slow burning build up that borders on the epic. Add in some melancholy spiked but rather lovely melodies, and you have something you can hang your metaphorical hat on.
