White Willow - Future Hopes (2017)

The seventh album from this Norwegian band.

The band is a sextet with a lineup of drums, bass, percussion, guitars, e-bow, flute, mellotron, keyboards, organ, piano, programming, vocoder and vocals.

The band was supported by a handful of guest musicians who provided guitars, clarinet and trumpet.

This is as I am writing these lines their latest album. But I guess we will see this band return again. They are simply too good to go away.

The band had gone more dream-pop and electronica by now and that is reflected by this album. A fifty minutes long album.

There is not much symphonic prog left here. Well.... traditional symphonic prog. 

The vocals is a mix of some male and mostly female vocals. There are more and better guitars here than on others White Willow albums thanx to Hedvik Mollestad's involvement. 

The overall quality is good throughout. This album is their most esoteric album to date but it is still worth checking out.
