Melbourne Alt-Country duo The Weeping Willows offer up a balm for troubled times with their glorious new single Wheels Won’t Roll. The Weeping Willows – known separately as Laura and Andy – are a pair of old souls with a folk-storytelling prowess.
Wheels Won’t Roll is a beautifully classic folk-country song. It’s full of rich vocal harmonies and intricate fingerpicked guitar. The song is ‘a reflection on the inertia and malaise that plagues us all sometimes’ – and it’s a captivating taste of what’s to come in this duo’s forthcoming album. It’s warm, sympathetic and uplifting; proof that music is the most potent kind of medicine. This is a triumphant celebration of their timeless Americana roots.
