The Weeping Willows - River of Gold

The Weeping Willows - River of Gold
The second, self-produced LP from partners in life, love, and song Andy Wrigglesworth and Laura Coates, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’ represents the fulfillment of the pair’s lifelong dream of recording in the United States.

Where much-admired debut Till The North Wind Blows (2012) arrived on a warm and wafting breeze of sweet harmonies, Before Darkness Comes A-Callin’ heralds a shift in the wind.

Darkness invites ready comparison with the work of some of Americana’s foremost tortured souls – Dave Rawlings & Gillian Welch, Shovels & Rope, The Handsome Family – as The Weeping Willows delve headlong into country’s bleaker corners, spanning murder ballads, Gospel-hued hymnals, and high-lonesome country shuffles.

Darkness was tracked with Grammy Award winning engineer Ryan Freeland (Justin Townes Earle, Bonnie Raitt) at Stampede Origin Studios in Los Angeles.

Adding the deftest of sonic touches to the palette are some of alt. country- Americana’s foremost players: Kevin Breit (Rosanne Cash) on banjo, David Piltch (Billy Bragg) on upright bass, Tommy Detamore (Ray Price) on pedal steel, Luke Moller (Kasey Chambers) on fiddle and mandolin, and guest vocals from Melbourne alt. folk duo Sweet Jean.

About this track...

Lead single ‘River of Gold’ is a stunning centrepiece: a song of desire that is at once destructive and irresistible, of surrendering to fate, driven inexorably onward by urgent backwoods banjo. It’s also an arresting study in Laura and Andy’s singular harmony: theirs is a vocal partnership of profoundest familiarity.
