White Williams – New Violence

...a pulsating three minutes

Bursting into life with a stuttering beat and driving bass line comes the debut single from American, Joe Williams.

In a pulsating three minutes the song races from new wave through synth pop, frazzled drone rock and wibbling electronica. If you want that in bands try, Modern Lovers, Human League, Spaceman 3 and The Orb. Each element complements and informs the other so you get fractured noise amongst the slick pop and potent purpose to the ambience, while Williams’ hushed tones are at their most tender when he repeats the title’s refrain. Lush, lovely downbeat pop.
