Album Review: Willie J Healey – Twin Heavy

Posted on 18 Aug 2020 at 8:04am

All sorts of references and plaudits have been thrown Willie J Healey’s way over the last few months.

It’s an obvious and easy trope for reviewers to draw comparisons between acts, but it’s not without purpose (and this reviewer has no bones about utilising such a well-worn technique). Perhaps it’s down to circumstance, but seeing some of the references in relation to Twin Heavy have left this writer bewildered; some are not without foundation – The Beatles (more of which later), Elliot Smith, Lou Reed and perhaps Dexys Midnight Runners. 1970s psychedelia and Pulp? Not so much.

This is in no way Healey’s fault, and it seems unfair on a young artist to bestow such honours when it’s not reflected in the finished product.

The Oxfordian was a victim of major label machinations, having been dropped by Columbia after his debut album failed to make the impression they had anticipated. Subsequently signing to Felix White’s YALA Records not only gave him a second bite of the cherry but also scope to indulge his idiosyncrasies – of which many are apparent on Twin Heavy – but none of which dominate the well-crafted songsmithery present.
