Former Maccabees Member Will White Releases Debut Solo EP As BLANc

Friday, 06 July 2018 Written by Helen Payne

Will White, now known as BLANc, has released a new EP.

His solo debut, 'Only One', is out now. Of the EP, the former Maccabees touring member and songwriter said:

"‘Only One was a turning point for me. It was like holding a mirror up to my life at that time."

Of the track Part Of Me, he added:

"It came from a conversation I had with a friend who had to hide his sexuality from a young age. The next day, that conversation started appearing in this melody when I was writing. The phrase ‘part of me’ jumped out. I used that as the anchor for the words. It brought out a lot of honesty."

BLANc will play a BBC Introducing show on July 10, followed by an EP launch at Peckham's Rye Wax on July 25 and a handful of other intimate shows. Check out the title track and its accompanying video below.
