WILSONN, “Even If I Know”
New Australian singer Wilsonn has some of the same mystique happening with “Even If I Know” that would parallel what some of us didn’t expect when we first heard Terence Trent D’Arby back in the 80’s. This is the kind of song that wears its pain and emotion on its sleeve, surrounded by surreal synths and trap inflections, but guided by a soulful voice and an almost live-off-the-floor vibe. Not your typical song to be sure, and that’s exactly why it stands out and becomes memorable. Wilsonn anchors you with a lilting and soothing melody in the song’s calmer moments, and you’ll be taken aback by the wild ending. Wilsonn definitely takes risks and isn’t willing to compromise, but that’s the magnet-in-hiding. Check out “Even If I Know” at the link above.
