Hints of the rare and precocious talent that lie within Iain Woods are confirmed on meeting him – he’s an effervescent, hyperactive personality, bristling with a level of professionalism and creativity that belies his relatively limited output so far.
The two EPs he’s released as the public face of the psychologist namesake make up the so-called Epidural Collection and showcase some unique and fascinating sounds. Woods makes music that encompasses compelling lyrical themes and a multitude of genre touchpoints. He weaves a tapestry of beautiful images from the everyday and initial comparisons to James Blake have thankfully fallen along the wayside.
Woods is an infinitely more interesting proposition than Blake could ever be and we expect amazing things to come from psychologist in 2012.
