Will Sims is a solo artist from Baltimore in the US. He has been recording seriously for the past five years or so, and his latest single Everything Will Work Out was released in October 2020.
To match my mood during these lockdown days, the soundtrack of my days are wildly veering between hard uncompromising nihilistic vibes, and then other much more gentle and tuneful optimistic sounds. As Will’s song title "Everything Will Work Out" suggests, we are firmly in that pleasant “let’s look forward camp” here.
Will Sim’s lyrics tend towards thinking about relationships and friendships in our complex world, and here in this tune is a simple message that things can be solved as long as they are seriously thought about. Apologies for the pun, but clearly where there’s a Will, there’s a way.
Will Sims has a gentle West Coast Indie vibe with this tune; the song rather reminds me of a mix between the Oasis classic Half The World Away perhaps blended with something like the California West Coast laid back Byrds Mr Tambourine Man style.
The result is one of those tunes which feels rather like that comfortable sweater with the holes in the elbows that you can’t bear to part with.
