Yesss....Tim Presley! Say the name and know that lit up within the shades and drapes of his many musical outﬁts are the sparks that make Tim's songs glisten and gleam - but September 16th's forthcoming The WiNK lives beyond all previous incarnations found in White Fence, Drinks, Hair and Darker My Love. Now there are fewer ﬁlters than ever between you and Tim. Thus, his name above the credits; a wink before diving into the complexities and delights of new-century long play pop music.
You (should have already) heard it on the drop of "Clue" - working with the creative team of producer Cate Le Bon, drummer Stella Mozgawa and engineer Samur Khouja, Tim's fingered the elusive corners of a perfect square. Their collective creativity and truth craft passages that function independently and as songs within songs, giving the tunes double jointed features that extend their original intentions. On "Long Bow," a steadfast barrel house riff is augmented by a barrage of phrases, stages, and shards of angular guitar prostration. The tension is unbreakable, a thin plastic slip, as Tim intones words implying and impugning indecision, desire and release (etc) upon a maze of high wild mercury stings. A true song for the here and now, "Long Bow" shakes and wails with certain urgency, held together by Tim's inviolable, classicist belief in the progression underneath.
This is true of The WiNK in general, making it one of Fall 16's no-miss releases. Tunes assembled in essential fashion, ﬂickering through disembodied moments with emerging symmetry and loads to sing along within and without you! Listen to "Long Bow" below and discover The WiNK on September 16th.
