DESERT ISLAND TWIST - Astrid Williamson

DESERT ISLAND TWIST – Astrid Williamson

Originally known for fronting Goya Dress (label mates of Suede on Nude Records in the 90s), Astrid Williamson has made a habit of releasing literate, atmospheric records under her own name over the last quarter of a century or so. A new one, Into The Mountain, is released on her own Incarnation Records label on 18th February, and Astrid will go on tour to celebrate (dates below).

Astrid now becomes our latest God Is In The TV desert island resident, picking those items that she just can’t live without…
