4 stars Who knew that the 80's so-called gothic style would come back after 20 years and be a la mode?

Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsee and the Banshees and The Cure did made an inprint in rock history as the forefathers of the gothic style, at least in the commercial buisness. Today many youngsters with dark eyes, died hair and black clothes are giving a new breath to the gothic image; Evanescence, My Chemical Romance, A Perfect Circle and Good Charlotte being perhaps the best examples.

White Willow is a pleasant gothic experience. Not too dark, which I think is good. Too much gloom and shadows can easily ruin the chance of being original. White Willow is sprinkling not only gothic music, but also folk and metal topped with a very good keyboard performance (be sure to check out the keyboardist's new band Wobbler...better than White Willow). So good, you could state that their biggest influence could be....Hooverphonic!

Hooverphonic is a belgium electro band that made quite some ruckuss in '97 with the album 'A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular'. The style was called Trip-Hop, with Bjork, Sneaker Pimps, Morcheeba and Portishead in front scene. The style never survived the 90's and Hooverphonic died also with the new millenium. But White Willow is definitely resurrecting Hooverphonic from it's ashes and it's a good thing to hear.

Winter just got better with a record like that.
