Wasuremono is the brain child of multi-instrumentalist William Southward and his love to write, record and meticulously arrange atmospheric pop songs in his shed studio in Bradford-On-Avon, UK.
They recently announced a double album “Let’s Talk” which is due out 2021 with part 1 landing in April and part 2 later in the year. The band made up of William, Madelaine Ryan and siblings Isaac and Phoebe Phillips have become firm favourites with BBC 6 Music, with regular spins on various shows at the station and a session at the legendary Maida Vale Studios in 2018. Their last album “Are You OK?” was picked as BBC 6 Music’s Album of the day and Steve Lamacq chose “Are You OK?” as “one of his favourite tracks of the year” and was also picked by Don Letts as part of his best of 2019. They have received strong support from Spotify and were featured on Spotify’s ‘Best of The Indie List 2019’ end of year playlist and their lead single “Are You OK?” has had over 6 million plays on Spotify so far. As a band they have supported the Flaming Lips and Phosphorescent on tour, and played at iconic venues such as Shepherds Bush Empire and Koko London.
