Dark Light

If you guys are into the sounds of acts such as Mac DeMarco, Only Real and a little Kurt Vile here and there… You really should give Willie J Healey a spin… Learn more about the Oxford (UK) native in the apology letter he wrote to his neighbors… While you read on, please do hit play…

Dear Neighbour,

I’m writing to apologise for my recent behaviour, and to set the record straight on a few things. It turns out that sound-proofing a garage is pretty damn hard and to get the guitar tone I like I have to turn my amp up all the way, otherwise it sounds like the beach boys throwing up. All at the same time. In harmony. I’m sure you understand. I am particularly embarrassed about the burger wrapper that blew into your pond. Who knew fish would want to eat that stuff? 

Anyway, I hope they’re now ok. I think I’ve managed to recover all of the clothes that were taken from your clothes-line. I personally didn’t find it funny when Eddy dressed up in your wife’s clothes, but you’re only 20 once. Unfortunately the midnight tones are essential – but I’ll be more selective about who I invite over in the future. 

I’ll also try to be more careful about knocking your bins over with my car. The trouble is that it’s quite long and really awkward to turn. Oh and for those who asked, I call it surf rock. But whatever, Homemade stuff all sounds the same to me. Come hang with me sometime.


Meet Willie J Healey, a 20-year old lad who captures this generation’s quest for no bullshit music bringing honesty to the table amidst his young age. Willie recorded the majority of the record in his garage. He called in some friends to play drums and bass, and the result is ‘HD Malibu’ EP. Songs are inspired by aliens, space and the extraterrestrial as per the Rough Trade description.

 The debut EP “HD Malibu” is due out May 11th. Pre-order on Rough Trade
