About Ward Thomas: Unfiltered

Ward Thomas didn’t have to come up with a theme for their third album. As 24 year old females who have fought their own way to success and as sharp-eyed songwriters who have long looked outwards for inspiration, they tapped in to the zeitgeist without even trying.

‘Restless Minds’, the follow-up to 2016’s chart-topping No.1 album ‘Cartwheels’, finds the Hampshire sisters on scorching form. Observational and opinionated, it documents their coming of age in an era of anxiety and the impact of social media on a generation for which ‘the truth’ has become a tenuous term. There are songs on the album which touch on women in the workplace and #MeToo, others explore mental health issues and a couple relate to their own relationship as twins growing up and growing apart. Sonically, ‘Restless Minds’ is every bit as bold.

“We’ve never worked so hard on songs in our lives,” says Catherine. “Once you’ve had a No.1 album, the expectation is immense. We went back to re-write choruses and re-record vocals, which we never did on Cartwheels. We had to prove that we’ve progressed and, fingers crossed people will agree.”
