William The Conqueror – The Puppet and the Puppeteer



William The Conqueror – The Puppet and the Puppeteer

British indie-rock trio William The Conqueror released the brooding yet at the same time, utterly enchanting “The Puppet and the Puppeteer,” exquisitely expressing the song’s intent. The track marks the follow-up to their previously released single “Somebody Else,” both are cuts from their upcoming album Excuse Me While I Vanish, due out on July 28 via Chrysalis Records. Asked about their new single, frontman Ruarri says:

“‘The Puppet and the Puppeteer’ could be a Jekyll and Hyde or Frankenstein’s monster story—about wrestling with or losing control of your creation—who controls whom. I definitely feel like William has the upper hand sometimes.”

Bandmates Harry and Nae add:

“It’s a favourite for us in our live shows. It deserves to be played loud, on a big sound system. You can bring the hustle, the mosh and the lighter sway to this party.”

The video is filmed at Marshall Studios by John Paveley, with editing by Shea McChrystal. Listen to “The Puppet and the Puppeteer,” our Song Pick of the Day, and enjoy the video:
