Today, London-based, Dorset-born musician Will Dorey aka Skinshape returns with a brand new single entitled “Theme For Lazarus (out now via Lewis Recordings). The new track expresses a sense of wide-eyed wonderment that expands upon the delicate, folk-edged setting in which the track sits, Will’s vocals echoing in the distance like somebody you used to know.
Speaking about the single, Will explains, “You often get themes for characters in film soundtracks, perhaps this is our protagonist. For the music, I wanted to create something that had elements of classic ‘Skinshape,’ but also to add some new ideas that I hadn’t used before such as the pizzicato strings.”
Stay tuned for more new music from Skinshape via Lewis Recordings.
Will Dorey aka Skinshape has proven himself time and again as a connoisseur for the cosmopolitan, across a prolific career expertly exploring understated sounds and theatrical textures. Taking his place alongside the likes of Khruangbin, Quantic, Tame Impala, Bonobo, and Madlib, Skinshape’s global kaleidoscopes are loaded with warmth and wisdom created on vintage analogue equipment applying a perfectionist’s touch. As a member of indie band Palace, he has played everywhere from Glastonbury and BBC Maida Vale to headlining Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Conversely as a solo artist Skinshape has never played live preferring to record, releasing an album a year (two in 2020’s lockdown) and keeping away from the trappings of stardom.
