Hailing from London, Will Serfass – best known as the vocalist of We Were Evergreen – has launched his solo project Wassailer. As a glimpse into his upcoming debut full-length i, the bastard, Wassailer has dropped his new single “242.” It’s a mellow indietronica piece where he uses shades of neo-soul over a dub-indebted melody where he looks back to a broken relationship. “It’s about that post relationship feeling of deep regrets, heavy guilt, mixed up with melancholia and hope. It’s also about realising how hard it is to be your true self, how easy it is to play a role, to avoid facing the real shit, I suppose,” shared Wassailer. Check out the video below:
On the lyric video, he shared: “I went back to East London to shoot some time lapses with my phone, sticking it to the upper deck front window of the actual bus 242. I was obsessed with the raindrops trickling on it at night, creating these psychedelic colour fx with the traffic lights. That’s basically as blurry as what’s going on in my mind most of the time.”
i, the bastard will be out on January 27th, 2021 via Empty Streets Records.
