Picture (Portrait) (LP)
The latest album from We Are The Willows, Picture (Portrait), has been a decade in the making. The album is based off of 350 letters written between singer/ frontman Peter Miller's grandfather and grandmother while he was stationed in the Southwest Pacific during World War II. Their correspondence inspired Peter to explore themes of family, separation, life, death, and identity in a time of national and personal crisis. The songs communicate complex ideas delivered with pop-sensible charm. His grandmother loves this album. You just might too.
