William Arcane - Want Somebody

The London man shares a track that offers more than may first meet the eye, lifted from his forthcoming debut release on Pictures Music.

Here’s William Arcane’s Want Somebody, which turns out to offer much more than may first meets the eye. Following the faintly Drake-ish introductory swells, the opening vocal refrain is introduced like one of a gazillion other pitched R&B samples before it – but soon turns out to be a plaintive, longing melody delivered by William himself. There’s plenty of gusto built underneath all this – with Want Somebody crescendoing around exuberant, LuckyMe-style synths. Along with the charming Not The Only One, Want Somebody will appear on William’s debut release, ‘Permanence’ – due on Pictures Music in a month’s time. Stream it below.

Pictures Music will release ‘Permanence’ on the 10th June.
