Willow was conceived in the late summer of 2011 after the demise of the three members prevoius band Walri. Guitarist Seth Chapdelaine and drummer Jared Mann began jamming, and they posted an early demo version of Colorado on their Bandcamp. Hearing this post, bassist Trevor White was eager to join the two's project. Working over the next five months, the three wrote what would become The Roanoke EP.

The Roanoke EP was recorded in a variety of places, mainly in the members respective living rooms or spare rooms in their apartments, or in the basement of Mann's childhood home. The recording and mixing process was handled solely by the group.

The members of Willow have all been playing music together in some form for the past 3 years. Seth and Jared had been involved in the experimental math group Blackbear. Jared and Trevor recently were involved with the project Bad Art [ which is scheduled to release a full length LP on the groups label/collective Blanketfort Records ].

Blanketfort Records is a collective of musicians based out of Providence, Rhode Island. They self-release, record, and promote all of their music, and have released several albums and EPs by some of their musicians...namely Big Tall Buildings [ Abandon Me Please, The Idaho EP ], Alex Yontz [ A Change is Coming EP ], Horselaugh [ The Horselaugh Tape ], and the Great Western States [ Strange Day EP ].

It's been a long time since we last had an exceptionally good [ Math-rock ] tune on this blog. So here you go... [ Willow ] it is but be sure not to be confuse with the following remarkable instrumental post-rock [ Willow ] though. Note that the band don't have any nice promos, reviews, photos, networking link and video's (yet), thus you won't find them on 100's of website but they sure do have a nice little EP (their first apparently ) and it's only a matter of time for this tiny gem to start amplifying. The band is also part of a music collective based out of Providence, RI called Blanketfort Records and self-release and record all of their own stuff [ in various bedrooms of each of their respective apartments / living spaces / mom's basements', etc ]...
