The Weeping Willows – ‘Black Crow’
Winners of the 2021 Golden Guitar for Instrumental of the Year, world-beating alt-country duo The Weeping Willows (Laura Coates and Andrew Wrigglesworth) plunge headlong into darkness once again with brooding new single “Black Crow.” Encroaching doom never sounded so sweet. Rooted in ageless Americana tradition and shivering with misgiving, “Black Crow” is yet further proof that The Weeping Willows’ celebrated vocal harmony is as exquisitely suited to tales of murder as it is to a delicate love song. Ranking among Australia’s foremost songwriters, lighting a path through the cloistered under-canopy and dim-lighted thickets of the soul, The Weeping Willows have netted eight CMAA Golden Guitar nominations and have supported Americana luminaries from Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real to Iris Dement. With “Black Crow,” The Weeping Willows reprise the thrilling Gothicism of critically acclaimed sophomore album Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’ (2016). To accompany the release of “Black Crow,” The Weeping Willows are excited to present a very special animated film clip rendered in suitably austere blacks and grays and thrilling with foreboding. Bleakly arresting, “Black Crow” is yet another unmissable taste of The Weeping Willows’ long-awaited third studio album and confirms the duo as Australia’s foremost vivisectors of the human condition and the shadowy forces that bind us to the earth.
