"My Boy"- Marlon Williams

(Automatic translation from a text written in french)

Marlon Williams is one of those singers who they say could sing anything, you'd still listen to them ... And fortunately, he doesn't abuse the situation and always behaves like a true "seeker" ...

He went back home to New Zealand during the pandemic, and came back with this new album "My Boy" ( Dead Oceans , Modulor) which can be described as a great "variety" album in the noblest sense of the word... It's never easy to be as close as possible to "oneself", the theme of identity being omnipresent here, while opening the doors wide, without any loss, and yet this is the challenge taken up by Marlon Williams...

Without doubt his most pop exercise, "My Boy" never turns empty and declines its introspective variations far from the dry lands with a confounding brio... For one, for all ... Enjoy !
