Earlier this year Neil reviewed The Willows album Beneath Our Humble Soil, the Cambridge based band made an instant impression which was reflected in his review (review here). We’re very pleased to be able to feature them again, here is a very special live video session which features three great tracks from their album. Enjoy!
Beneath Our Humble Soil is a hugely enjoyable album; with songs that engage and enliven, music that appeals across the board, and there’s no doubt that Jade Ward’s husky tones create bewitching vocal performances. The Willows have developed a winning combination, just as comfortable with a gutsy rendition of their own murder ballad as they are with a foot-stompin’ alt-country protest song. A warm and wonderful release.
