I took a year for a second Boy Willows song to turn up, but it was well worth that wait. He melted us to the core with debut single I’m Good last winter. Autumn Gray arrives just in time for the wist and melancholy that comes with the turning of leaves. The Los Angeles based artist melds dreamy strumming indie rock with sylvan indietronica on the ethereal gliding, golden shimmering lullaby. Like the artwork that comes with the single, Autumn Gray reminds me of a cold fall afternoon. A solitary walk through the woods provides us with the exquisite beauty of a warm orange sun peaking through the brown and yellow foliage overhead, which hang on ever so feebly to its branches in hopes of fighting the coming of winter and standing up to the winds of change. Autumn Gray is picturesquely affecting, a familiar and intimate exploration of our flimsy hearts.
