listen hear! Song of the Day: William the Conqueror feels the need to "Move On"

Luke Kellet

listen hear!  spotlights a song we like and think you will too!

We’ve been loving ‘Move On’, the latest single and accompanying nostalgic video from UK indie rock trio William the Conqueror. It appears on what we think might be their best album yet, Maverick Thinker. It’s a slow building, guitar-driven song that speaks to the restless feeling of being stuck in the past and the need to move forward, penned by the band’s frontman and singer, Ruarri Joseph.

The album was recorded at the famed Sound City Studios in LA. The setting that gave birth to classic albums from the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, and Neil Young

Joseph describes the song’s creation: “I found the riff and the hook on an old Dictaphone recording of a soundcheck.  The guys are jamming along and it sounds fully formed, then it cuts off and we do something else. I’d forgotten all about it, so it was perfect for a song about piecing memories together.”

Catch the listen hear! Song of the Day each weekday morning at 11:10.
