William William Rodgers: The Slippery Slide

English folk artist William William Rodgers dives into orchestral, luscious pop on his new single, The Slippery Slide, a track from his forthcoming Four Nights at the Hotel Rodgers EP. Singing about getting out of a bind only to be drawn into it again, it is a perpetuum mobile of hope and giving in. Rodgers' way with words and ironic outlook on life are presented on a bedding of '70s production values, complete with a singalong part and rather smart violin touches. Imagine Nick Drake in a cheerful mood being applauded by Al Stewart.
