Indie rock trio William The Conqueror might well have just dropped one of 2021’s sleeper
hits. It’s a record of cuts and bruises, wrapped within bittersweet leftfield rock n roll tunes.

The band is fronted by Ruarri Joseph, a wry, patient storyteller, who has managed enough living to portray a world-weary wisdom in his words, but balances it all with enough optimism to suggest he hasn’t quite lived. ‘Maverick Thinker’ is a record of short, sharp shots to the arm. Fuzzy college rock with chops, one foot lingering menacingly over the distortion pedal.

Recorded in LA at the infamous Sound City Studios, Ruarri, Naomi Holmes (bass) and Harry
Harding (drums) rattled through the album’s ten tunes at a breakneck speed. Which turns
out to have been a good thing, because the sessions were cut short as the pandemic took
grip. With the studio doors locked, the band spent a final, eerie day wandering a deserted
Venice Beach before flying home early, but with the record already in the can. All that chaos brings a certain unpredictability to an album that nods to some of the US lo-fi greats and yet arrives at something innately British.

Praised for their grit and authenticity by The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, their live performances have drawn wildly enthusiastic comparisons to Kings of Leon, Nirvana, Buffalo Tom and The Marshall Tucker Band.

Artist Bio

William The Conqueror's new album Bleeding on the Soundtrack is out now on Loose. Produced by Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, White Denim, Laura Marling) at Peter Gabriel’s iconic Real World Studios, it is the second instalment of William’s story following on from debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, released in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim.

A character, a mythology, the flicker of a younger self, William the Conqueror is many things, but in simplest terms it is the name of a band put together by songwriter Ruarri Joseph, alongside his close musical conspirators Harry Harding (drums) and Naomi Holmes (bass). The trio have been picking up praise from far flung corners ever since Joseph took the step to go public with his erstwhile secret alter-ego, their shows steadily winning over fans wherever they play.

The indie-rock three piece channel classic blues and roots rock through a grunge/indie filter, with diverse influences including The Doors, Pearl Jam and The Lemonheads. Praised for their grit and authenticity by The Guardian and NPR’s Ann Powers, they signed to Loose, joining a roster that includes Courtney Marie Andrews, Israel Nash and The Handsome Family. Praise for their live performances has drawn wildly enthusiastic comparisons to the likes of Kings of Leon, Nirvana, Buffalo Tom and The Marshall Tucker Band.
