A debut album is simultaneously the easiest and hardest album to write. In one way, you have no pressure from an existing fanbase, you’ve got time to write the thing and, if it’s not that great, in years to come critics will refer to it as merely ‘cutting your teeth’. On the other hand though, you literally have everything to prove because, let’s face it, who the fuck wants to go unnoticed? London based I, The Writer have a familiar challenge on their hands then, their debut, ‘The Prisoner’s Dilemma’, has to measure up. Fail to weigh in and you’ll be back in the gym working that bag, that window for success growing ever smaller.
