One Step Closer signal a sea change with "Songs For The Willow." With last year's "This Place You Know," the band had already mastered a unique stripe of mournful melodic hardcore informed by eclectic emo influences. But on "Songs For The Willow," they've tapped into a dynamic, emotionally powerful, and sonically intricate post-hardcore space inhabited by the charged aura and artistic nuance of landmark, early 2010s records like Title Fight's "Floral Green" and Touche Amore's "Is Survived By." 12"ep includes a UV printed B-side.
