Having hinted at a shift in sound on their first single, ‘Hold/Release’, Palm Reader’s stunning second single confirms that there will be a change in direction on their forthcoming album. ‘Willow’ incorporates more melody and showcases both talent and creativity as they take on loss.
“‘Willow’ was written after I’d been told a heartbreaking story of loss and young motherhood. I wrote it with the intention of illuminating the strength of any mother in that unfortunate position and to offer a permanent gesture of respect to them. It was one of the first songs we wrote for Sleepless and it definitely helped set the tone musically for a lot of what was to come.” says vocalist Josh Mckeown of the song. “We’ve put together a music video with the help and expertise of our good friend and collaborator Sam Lees. His creativity and vision will further highlight the lyrical content and the sentiment attached to the song.”
