The Woods – Armchair Expert 

The Woods - Armchair Expert

Release Date: Out Now

Scottish soloist The Woods (aka Johnny McFadzean) is a bit of a prodigy by all accounts and the fact that he is responsible for every bit of music and the video for this track then I’d be hard pushed to disagree. This new single, ‘Armchair Expert’, makes me slightly uncomfortable as I type this…from an armchair but I’ve never professed to be an expert, just an enthusiast with no other hobbies. Musically, this is an absolute delight of a song pitched somewhere between Radiohead, Alt-J, Zero 7 and that mindset you get when you’ve stayed up on your own until the wee small hours. Cascading vocals, a clicked beat and the most soporific of keys lull you in to a sense of relaxation before the song starts to build and mutate like a Jim Noir or Cosmo Sheldrake opus. Thoroughly refreshing, engaging and delighting - and all in equal measure.

Live Dates:

31st May – Cha Cha Cha Vintage, London
16th June – Sunset Sessions @ Treyarnon Bay, Cornwall
23rd July – EP Launch @ The Finsbury, London
