Singled Out: White Willow's Floor 67

White Willow release their brand new album, "Terminal Twilight," today and to celebrate we asked Jacob to tell us about one of the songs from the effort, "Floor 67". Here is the story:

The song "Floor 67" off our latest album "Terminal Twilight" actually started with me reading a newspaper article about a couple in Brazil. This was back when the first big financial crack happened, back in 2008. This well-off couple had bought the penthouse apartment in Brazil's newest, fanciest, most luxurious high-rise apartment building.

They were the first couple to have bought an apartment, and they moved in immediately. And just, like almost on the very day that they moved in, the market crashed and everything stopped. No-one bought another apartment, development in the area stopped completely. But they had paid for their apartment, and refused to budge on the matter. So they lived alone, in the topmost apartment of this gigantic skyscraper, while the world pretty much fell apart all around them.

I read that and I thought, THIS is a song if ever I heard one. So I wrote it, and sort of took the story to its extreme conclusion, so there are lines like: "The empty cabana, the wolves by the poolside, the hawks in the grand foyer", which sort of puts an apocalyptic spin on the whole thing. But the story seemed apocalyptic to me from the outset.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
