Vasser has premiered second single ‘To The Wolves’, which is available today. This follows his much-acclaimed debut ‘Whatever You Want/Retract’, having already surpassed 1 million plays on Spotify, picked up support across BBC Introducing, Radio 1 and 1Xtra, and gone top 10 on Hype Machine. ‘To The Wolves’ is taken Vasser’s debut EP, ‘A Telling End’, which will follow in the coming weeks.
‘To The Wolves’ is another cut of coolly-controlled, quietly confessional songwriting from Vasser, a still-just-18-year-old singer and producer evidently testing his own boundaries. Starting life on his bedroom piano in Sevenoaks – before digging deeper into a love of textured electronica like Francis & The Lights or Jon Hopkins – ‘To The Wolves’ was inspired (says Vasser) “by a year-long relationship that was constantly proving unequal. It’s also the first track I’ve written in which my vocals proved to be a focal point, and where the song was based around them rather than a production-led arrangement.”
‘To The Wolves’ captures that confusion and possible chaos in a transitional time for Vasser (and his peers). He started writing songs in earnest around his final exams, unsure of what lay ahead but keen to follow an artistic instinct first hinted at aged 9, when he picked up the guitar and started playing Jazz with some like-minded school friends. Half German, half British, and born to an inherently creative household – his mother is an oil painter – the family’s sleepy-commuter town in Kent nonetheless offered little musical evidence of the sort of bedroom beat-makers Vasser found himself continually drawn to. And so on ‘Whatever You Want’, Vasser simply did it all himself, lyrically channeling an uncertainty over what lay ahead (in your career, and your romantic life) into effortless electronic pop. Returning today, ‘To The Wolves’ confirms Vasser’s growing reputation as one of the UK’s most prodigious new discoveries.
