Artist: Band: Trespassers William Website:http://www.trespasserswilliam.com/ Genre: Folk/Pop CD Review: Interesting name for a 3 person band. Vocals and overall sound reminds me of 10,000 Maniacs. 'I know i'll never see you / I know i'll never run into your body / walking through the crooked streets / I know i'll never hear you / I know i'll never hear you like a sound / that wafts inside from outside there' is the poetry of love lost in 'I Know', but with the beautiful 'Anchor', there is hope for the relationship. 'oh our dance was slow / and you tumbled with my hands / whisper "time to sleep" / you have dreams awaiting your tired mind / does your heart get weaker / when you think how far we've to go.' Anna-Lynne Williams has the high-woe, I don't care lilt of voice that makes her sound tired except when she's singing from the heart or builds in dramatic beauty, which often happens. A band to watch for.
