Earlier this month, he also unveiled yet another witty, self-conceived video for ‘Take Me Dancing’, a hugely addictive slice of indie pop, further proving why the Kent youngster is such an exciting prospect for 2016.
In a little over a year, Will has released two EPs to widespread acclaim, and has amassed well over 9 million streams worldwide. His last single ‘Girls Like Me’ featured a brilliantly tongue-in-cheek video, written by the man himself, seeing Will going speed-dating with various versions of himself, dressed in drag. The track was immediately added to the In New Music We Trust playlist on Radio 1, amassing well over 20 plays, with support from the likes of Annie Mac, Clara Amfo and Greg James.
This year so far has already seen Will play sold-out shows at both the Barfly and Boston Music Rooms, as well as playing SXSW for the first time, plus The Great Escape in Brighton.
Will’s ear for a massive hook and intense melody is evident across his debut EP release ‘You Jump I Run’ and his second effort ‘Proof Enough’, released in March and August 2015 respectively. Tracks from these releases gained Will the #1 spot on Hype Machine (Message and Daisy Chains), the #2 spot on the Global Spotify Viral Chart and spot plays across Radio 1, 6Music and Radio X, as well as him being chosen as a Spotify Spotlight On 2016 Artist.
