New Zealand’s Marlon Williams has quite simply got one of the most extraordinary, effortlessly distinctive voices of his generation, and 30th November sees him return to London to join us here at Hackney Arts Centre....
His sophomore album Make Way For Love released in February, explores new musical terrain and we see Williams revealing himself in an unprecedented way, in the wake of a fractured relationship with his long term girlfriend, artist Aldous Harding.
Williams and his band The Yarra Benders, embarked on a 67 date world tour at the beginning of this year to celebrate the record, playing sold out shows throughout the US, UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
If “breakup record” is a trope—and certainly it is—then Marlon Williams has done it proud. Like the best of the lot—Beck’s Sea Change, Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago, Phosphorescent’s harrowing Song For Zula and Joni Mitchell’s masterpiece Blue, Make Way For Love doesn’t shy away from heartbreak, but rather stares it in the face, and mines beauty from it. Delicate and bold, tender and searing, it’s a mightily personal new step.
