Will White (former Maccabees touring member and songwriter) aka BLANc releases his new single Chameleon on Yala! Records. After signing with BMG publishing in 2016, White has been building an impressive body of work, garnering much critical acclaim and building reputation for his captivating live performances, most notably during a residency at the Nines in Peckham’s Bussey Building to an ever-growing word of mouth following.
Though ostensibly a solo project, Will White’s BLANc has managed to incorporate a wide range of collaborators to lend their considerable talents both live and on record, including Jamie Morrison (Stereophonics) violinist Gillian Maguire (Ghostpoet) and rising star Nilüfer Yanya.
Chameleon showcases the introspection and hushed atmospherics that initially characterised Will White’s writing, into a more up-tempo, Americana-tinged inflection; sonically somewhere between Interpol meets Feist via Tom Petty, lyrically it’s a study on having to face something and the emotions that process can elicit.
