On Heels Of NPR Music, Stereogum + Vice Noisey - Wilsen's Cd Release Show At Union Pool May 2'I Go Missing In My Sleep' Out April 28 On Secret City Records
Mesmerizing Brooklyn trio Wilsen will celebrate the release of their hushed and heart-racing debut full-length record at Union Pool on Tuesday, May 2 (10PM). ‘I Go Missing In My Sleep’ is out April 28 on Secret City Records. There’s been a lot of heat on Wilsen recently, with Stereogum, Vice Noisey and NPR Music writing about the new album, a VEVO video premiere, a performance at the monthly Communion showcase and more.
"Softly devastating’’ – Stereogum: http://www.stereogum.com/1931028/wilsen-final/premiere/
"It manages to be both soothing and disquieting. At points it sounds like it’s running backwards. Sometimes like a memory tantalizingly out of reach” – Noisey: https://noisey.vice.com/en_us/article/wilsens-video-for-centipede-will-chill-you-the-heck-out
"A major revelation" - NPR Music: http://www.npr.org/sections/allsongs/2017/02/02/512975698/wilsen-s-dreamy-bedroom-folk-steps-out-into-the-world

Wilsen is fronted by Tamsin Wilson, with Drew Arndt on bass and Johnny Simon on guitar. The trio burst onto the independent music scene in 2013 with the self-released double-EP ‘Sirens,’ and 2014’s EP ‘Magnolia.’ Tours with Daughter, Matthew E White, San Fermin and shows with London Grammar soon followed. Wye Oak remixed a song for the ‘Magnolia’ remix EP along with Sun Glitters, Death Vessel and White Hinterland. Tamsin has lent her vocals to Honne's "Coastal Love" single and her vocal line is used in a SBTRKT song. In 2016, the self-released singles “Garden” and ‘’Centipede'' grew quickly on streaming sites. “Garden” is now at over 3.4 million streams across all platforms.
