From their album Before Darkness Comes A-callin’, Melbourne duo The Weeping Willows have released a third single, ‘Pale Rider’. There’s no one quite like this band at work in Australia today – they have a traditional country music sound but it sounds like it’s from the High Country of the nineteenth century rather than any other land you could name. Their music is clean and crisp yet it loves room for muddiness and mystery too. Perhaps that’s a form of Australian country gothic – or perhaps this is just a great song.
