LISTEN: Ark – 
“Westerman’s warped, weird and wonderful take on pop has been the soundtrack of the 2018 underground”
Another Man
“manages to delicately balance melodic complexity and a variety of different instruments in a way that sounds not just easy, but effortless”


“Westerman’s songwriting takes in the tumult of a whirring mind and turns it into music that has the power to soothe modern anxieties, if not solve them”
– Pitchfork Rising
Today, West London’s Westerman releases his new Ark EP. Having previously shared singles “Albatross” and “Outside Sublime“, today Westerman shares Ark, a new EP written over the course of two days ensuring a looser, more nebulous sound. The Ark EP’s challenge was building on the four striking singles released earlier this year; “Confirmation,” named Pitchfork’s Best New Track, “I Turned Away,” “Edison” and “Easy Money,” which it did with aplomb.
With his ongoing collaboration with Buillion, Westerman has gradually been burning a hole through the fabric of atmospheric pop with his dulcet tones and blend of magical-realism.
Ark‘s sound is born from the urgency of its writing sessions. Westerman conjured up the EP in the midst of a hectic schedule, stealing the only time he could to write. “I had this brief window to go into myself and try to make sense of the shifts that were going on around me,” he says of the project. “Albatross” sets the tone for the EP with a gently upbeat mix of 60s melody and bursts of celestial synth whilst follow up note to a friend “Outside Sublime” featured a video directed by Beatrix Blaise and served up a wonderful moment of collaborative art.
Meanwhile, new tracks “Own” and “Ark” represent the shifts in Westerman’s life, with scattered electronics and skeletal guitar lines sketching out delicate melodies, arriving on the EP untouched.
With continued support from leading publications such as Pitchfork, Noisey, Stereogum, DIY, Dazed, Gorilla vs. Bear, Clash among others, the Ark EP is the latest chapter in Westerman’s journey from pop maverick to one of the most vital voices in the UK.
Ark is a symbol of solace and of transition,” Westerman says. Now in the midst of his most ambitious tour to date – with shows in New York and Los Angeles and a debut album set for next year, his transition is looking as exciting as anyone’s.
Ark EP is out now on Blue Flowers.
Tour Dates:
11/27 – Brooklyn, NY @ Elsewhere
11/29 – Los Angeles, CA @ Moroccan Lounge
12/12 – London, UK @ The Jazz Café
