7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 27th July 2015
I'm a bit surprised that young punky types from California, The Willowz weren't more popular. Their short, melodic pop-punk blasts fit right in with the likes of The White Stripes or The Strokes. Their first releases were in the early 2000s, right on cue, they just weren't caught in the tidal surge that seemed to pick up an awful lot of nonsense with it. Their music was used in the Michel Gondry films "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" (Kirsten Dunst is jumping on bed to one of their songs) and "Science Of Sleep". The latter featured two songs from "Talk In Circles", namely "Ulcer Love" and "Making Certain". I can only assume that their music was a little harder to swallow for more meek fans. "We Live On Your Street" has more of a Riot Grrrl aesthetic than the more palatable sounds of The Strokes or The White Stripes. Conversely, "What's Wrong Is Right" is very Jack White-ish. Anyway, there's a load of songs on here (20) and it's pretty good stuff so give it a go.
