I have the perfect Sunday soundtrack for you. Tom Williams And The Boat are just ace and their new single Little Bit In Me is no different. Brought to life by Ceri Amphlett the song is accompanied by a beautiful yet suitably eerie pagan-esque woodland video.
Following on from their album, Teenage Blood, which was released earlier this year. Little Bit In Me is the new single, out September 17th through their own Pledgemusic funded Wire Boat Records. Tom’s intuitive storytelling is draped across a classic melody. Evidence of an imagination run wild, Tom’s lyrics meander and stagger through a landscape of scarred and pitted characters, all ever present in a nightmarish gene pool he seems to yearn to escape from.
“The masks seemed especially relevant seeing that the song is about monsters in some respects. Ceri also had a cinefilm camera which gave it that elephant man feel” explains Tom. “For the first time ever we went into the video shoot, without any idea of what we were meant to be doing and we just did whatever Ceri asked us to do. It was really fun to make and all over in a couple of hours!”
