Will Z. is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, first known for his work with his band Cosmic Trip Machine, then The Book of AM 'cult' project. A solo artist he has explored several genres, from dark occult rock and hard rock to acid-folk and baroque pop, incorporating Indian music and experimental elements.
This new record is the 6th by Will Z, a dreamy psychedelic folk delight coming in limited edition splatter vinyl and limited edition cd.
A NEW MIRRORED YOU is based on La Vita Nuova, a book by Dante Alighieri, and explores two themes:
- How you can turn a difficult one-sided relationship into beautiful art and inspiration, like an alchemist who changed metal into gold ;
- How you can live two lives at the same time, a life related to reality and a life related to poetry and how it is difficult to find right balance between physical world and your dreams, being aware of implications, frustrations and defaults in all that.
