Drawing inspiration from the books of classic British rock, doom and psychedelia of the late 1960s and early 1970s, New York powerhouse trio Wicked Willow confidently take the stage with incredible studio footage of their latest fan favorite, “Crossin’ Rivers.” Fast and upbeat, “Crossin’ Rivers” carries strong poetic themes describing a desperate search for that muse; this lover of dreams who holds the power to inspire and uplift them on their journey forward in music. That feeling of nostalgia depicted in the band’s heart-on-sleeve history pairs perfectly with the intense riffs and powerful drum patterns inspired by hard rock and heavy metal. Artist Matt Glover emotionally belts captivating vocals alongside talented Phil Duke on bass and expressive Elliot Kafton on drums.
“I ran for what I needed, entertain me, baby, and believe in me // I swear there’s no greater need in my being than to love kindly – to let go socket.” ~ Crossing rivers
