Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

It is important for an album to open with a good track that manages to hold the listeners attention. On this count Trespassers William succeed. ” I Know ” is a mesmerising song about unrequited love that captures singer Anna-Lynne Williams voice at its most beautiful.

The rest of this debut album is equally striking. Trespassers William have a moody, but not downbeat sound with folk touches. Their songs are slow and passionate and their lyrics insightful. This is an album to cherish.
