Brand new sealed album with red vinyl from this NZ artist.
Marlon Williams has come into his own and he's about to break a lot of hearts with his new album.
While his self-titled debut felt like Williams was just flexing his muscles with different sounds and elements of the genre, Make What's great about it is that while in pop and hip hop everyone's throwing up a middle finger to love and getting over someone by getting under someone else, Williams is painfully raw and honest, capturing the bittersweet nature of love and the truly terrible nature of heartbreak.ay for Love is a far more personal and, at times, uncomfortably raw offering.
It still leads in with the Williams you know and love, starting out in a summer haze with upbeat surf-rock vibes, but then it descends into heartache with such fluidity you barely know it's happening until you're sitting at your desk willing yourself not to cry.
This is the album Williams poured his heart out to make during the month following his break up with fellow Kiwi star Aldous Harding at the end of 2016, and you can feel it all.
The hardest part about it is that nothing really went wrong and these artists are just faced with the reality that sometimes, that's just the way love goes as they sing, "There is no blame/There is no shame...Nobody gets what they want anymore".
