Skinshape - Arrogance is the Death of Men

19.99

Second album in less than a year from the prolific William Dorey. Skinshape returns with the witheringly, prophetically titled Arrogance is the Death of Men. Written and recorded between November 2019 and July 2020, Skinshape bids to recreate something akin to the ‘old style’ of Oracolo (2015) and Life and Love (2017). With Arrogance…, Will Dorey’s blueprint points to a simple formula, aligning a bank of fresh drum breaks recorded at the end of 2019 to whatever he had to hand, for a long player recorded in the majority at home due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Forever balanced between sweetness and a sigh, as per his position Behind the Sun, the Skinshape essence, intricate yet always reachable, at times tailored in a single session and sourcing archive bric-a-brac when required, is all around on the sweetly strummed Tomorrow and The Eastern Connection, featuring Ivan Kormanak on drums.
