“A songwriter with real depth, his work has a painterly touch, a way of utilising music and words to deliver something special.” – Clash
“Clapson is pushing his boundaries – both personal and musical.” – Atwood
Alternative UK singer-songwriter William Clapson, better known as Jack in Water, releases his new EP Presence today. Produced with Bat for Lashes collaborator Ben Christophers, Clapson wanted to push himself out of his usual comfort zone. The renowned producer has given Presence’s productions a unique power that supports and uplifts Clapson’s new bold sonic direction, while still retaining his emotional rawness.
Following previous EP singles “Gentle Punches” and “Until We Meet The Dust,” Jack In Water has shared a video for the track “Noise.” Watch it below:
“The EP’s lyrical focus is on being honest with yourself and accepting and engaging with all of the different internal conflicts and utterances that exist inside everyone”, he told Clash Magazine. “The track ‘Noise’ is about masculinity and how often it can feel like repression is a kind way of dealing with all of the internal noise and emotional turmoil that goes on inside your head.”
The theme running throughout Presence is honesty and remaining present. “I wanted the focus to be on the approaches I have taken in my life to try and be more honest and present in all of my relationships with people.” He added, “Whether that is getting over your pride and taking accountability for your actions, tackling any repression left in your bones or just allowing yourself to be in love and be loved.”
