Jess Williamson shares track and video 'Wild Rain' from new LP 'Cosmic Wink' released 11 May, out now on Mexican Summer.
"I recorded this song at first with just me singing and playing it on an acoustic guitar. We thought it was going to be a scratch vocal so we didn't mic everything the 'correct' way...I like the way it sounds. It's a little bit lazy. There is this remnant of my acoustic guitar bleeding from my headphones into the vocal track, you can hear it the most at the beginning of the song. But we liked that too! A happy accident. It became the perfect rhythmic element to anchor the beginning of the song. It reminds me of rain. We wanted to have a moment of the heavens breaking open midway through and ushering us into another realm. So we started building off just my voice and the memory of an acoustic guitar, layering synths and more vocals. This is probably my favorite song on the album and it's the first song I wrote for Cosmic Wink."
