Tamsin Wilson wrote most of the songs that would become the debut album of her band Wilsen during early mornings spent in her small Brooklyn apartment. The tracks on I Go Missing In My Sleep reflect that songwriting setting, embodying a graceful tenderness as if careful not to wake her neighbors. Yet don’t mistake volume for impact, as Wilson is capable of drawing blood with swift lyrical jabs that strike chords you didn’t see coming. I Go Missing In My Sleep features delicate fingerpicking and indelible turns of phrase that unnoticeably burrow themselves into your headspace until you discover yourself stuck on the melodies later in the day. We’ve already heard the singles “Centipede,” with its roving guitar lead and pillowing synth lines, and the devastatingly intimate “Final,” and today we’re premiering the album in its entirety.
