Cleveland native, White Williams, crafts experimental electronica without a shred of self-consciousness. His music borrows liberally from the conventional structures of pure pop, but is messed up with glitchy instrumentation and swirling guitar lines. Interestingly, Spin Magazine once noted that listening to the ‘ambiguous and oft awkward synth pop’ of White Williams leaves you unsure whether ‘you should be dancing to it or laying in the grass’.

Listen to the White Williams track, New Violence.
