White Willow is considered Norway´s foremost exponent of art-rock - by which people tend to mean pop songs stretched to pointless lengths and crammed with weird-sounding instruments. And that happens to be pretty much what we do.
We´ve been at it since 1995 when we released our first album, -Ignis Fatuus-. Since then we´ve changed line-ups frequently, and gone through gradual stylistic shifts that have led us from prog-folk via symphonic hard rock to something else. It is universally agreed that in spite of all these instabilities a White Willow album must contain certain constants: Chiming guitar chords, mellotrons and songs about sad people.
Our favorite quote about the band is from allmusic.com: -In a prog world where quality is too often measured through virtuosity alone, White Willow embodies the simple and uncertain beauty of shadows.-
