William The Conqueror Drops “Maverick Thinker”

Last week, South West England trio William The Conqueror released their new album Maverick Thinker. The record of cuts and bruises, is wrapped within bittersweet rock n roll tunes. Maverick Thinker is a sharp razor dripping with blues and distinct vocal delivery. 

The band is led by Ruarri Joseph, a storyteller, who manages to portray a weary tone in his words, but balances it with the optimism that there’s more to life. The 10-track project filled with muffled chaos brings a certain unpredictability to it. It makes nods to some of the US lo-fi greats and yet arrives at something innately British.

Accompanying the record is, William The Conqueror: The Podcast. An audio book version of a forthcoming novel written and narrated by Ruarri. 

It’s the fictional account of a musician trying to make ends meet, get acknowledged, and trying harder not to care. It’s a funny, wise and endearing project that is so unique to the band that fits their charm.

This album follows up their 2019 project Bleeding on the Soundtrack, and features hit tracks like “Move on” from their earlier EP. After spending a majority of 2020 recording and navigating the pandemic, the band is ready to get back out there and show the world what they have been working on.

The Indie rock band delivers a sound that pays tribute to classic Nashville Americana and English Folk. William The Conqueror’s unique blend of genres and creative inspiration prove to be making waves. Since their emergence in 2017 with Proud Disturber of the Peace, they have been in a lane all their own. So be on the lookout for more from the band, and be sure to check out the music videos along with the podcast for their album
