Cotton Crown is the solo alias of O Williams from The Tubs, Ex-Void and Sniffany & The Nits. Produced by Matt Green (Artefact, Sniffany & The Nits), Wretched Lie is Cotton Crown’s first release and marks a foray into a bleaker style of songwriting. Written during the winter lockdown while living in an abandoned Sydenham care home, these two tracks combine Williams’ usual pop melodicism with a more theatrical, gothic sensibility reminiscent of early Cure, Killing Joke or Drab Majesty. Featuring art by fellow Nits J.M.K.E and Wozza, this ‘cassingle’ is truly an example of ‘keeping it in the family’.
