Will Wood is an American singer-songwriter, known for his ever-changing style and difficult-to-decipher public persona. Wood has released numerous singles and three studio albums: Everything Is A Lot, in 2015; Self-Ish (stylized as SELF-iSH), in 2016, The Normal Album in 2020, and the forthcoming In Case I Make It to be released in the summer of 2022.
Wood likes to step back and take in the bigger picture and in his latest chamber pop composition “Tomcat Disposables”, he tries to do just that. Set to an existential game of cat and mouse, Wood presents himself as a skilled composer/arranger on this stirring blend of strings, keys, syncopated percussion, and intricately finger-picked guitar set to an accompanying, equally engaging, video. The human race loves how special it is. So much so that we often lose sight of how special, and at the same time small and insignificant, practically everything is. “Tomcat Disposables” helps remind us of that.
“I have a weird affinity for pests. Oddly relatable. They don’t mean to harm anyone, but they spread disease and leave most of us figuring they should probably die. During the winter of the pandemic, I walked into my wrecked kitchen to find a mouse trying to drag a big parmesan rind into a gap behind the oven, all bug-eyed and bird-footed. He ran away when he saw me, so I broke the cheese into smaller pieces, figuring it was cold out and he could use a hand. New friend,” says Wood.
