Wesley Gonzalez has dropped a brand new track, 'Tried To Tell Me Something'

Wesley Gonzalez has dropped a brand new track, 'Tried To Tell Me Something'.

Taken from his forthcoming album 'Appalling Human', he explains: “I spent the months before writing it listening to strictly Prince, Disco and Eurythmics ‘There Must Be An Angel’. Lyrically it’s a song that focusses on hindsight and looking at things in a different light, how you can be totally in a partnership with someone and in relatively no time at all find that things have changed dramatically.”

“Obviously under the current Lockdown my initial plans for a video fell through, so I reached out to fantastic digital artist and dear friend Alex Jackson to try and put something animated together. We discussed a couple of visual aesthetics we liked and sent each other a couple of videos of George McRae & Barry White to get an initial feel, then I let Alex run with it. We lived together for years and he has always been greatly amused by my fear of/obsession with ghosts, so I think he was inspired to use haunting imagery along with disco glamour. Previously we had done a really shonky 3D scan of me in his bedroom on a xbox camera, I’m glad he’s put it to good use.”

'Appalling Human' is set for release on 12th June via Moshi Moshi Records. Before then, he'll be taking part in our online music festival Homeschool, taking place between 8th and 10th May. You can read more details of that here.
