Willaris. K is thrilled to share his debut EP Alchemy.
‘Risen’ is the fourth song to be taken off Willaris. K’s debut EP, a 7-track mini album that moves between thick industrial techno and sparse pensive melodic moments. The Alchemy EP features his previous singles - the debut single ‘Alchemy’ that saw Willaris. K break through with airplay on triple j, followed by ‘Dour Nights’ which was named by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong as his Essential New Tune - as well as four new tracks, which together explore themes of transience, movement, darkness and currents.
