The Weatherman is back in 2013 with his self-titled debut, in which he definitely defines himself as an eclectic pop composer.
His previous albums had already left clues to what now appears more clearly: The Weatherman pop music is a diversified universe, revealing a rare versatility which takes over as the main personal identity.
Weatherman's music never has been been so autobiographical, one intimate other times mundane, on an album where themes like love in its multiple strands and the search for soothing places as a process of self remain it's main driving force.
Mastered by Tim Debney (Thom York, Lilly Allen, Kasabian, Gorillazz, Super Furry Animals, among others), at Fluid Mastering in London.
In 2013, the Weatherman is a certainty that came back to stay.
