Single Premiere: Woolbright – ‘Pillow Top’

Posted: by The Editor


Reflecting on old memories can be a complicated process. Some feel closer than others, no matter the time that has passed since. Some carry emotional intensity or just make up a passing thought. On their new single, Pillow Top, lead singer/guitarist Candice Maritato recalls a memory that passes in waves much like the song itself. The harmonies build up to make a solid way of sound while still maintaining a delicate balance of instrumentals lead by the intricate guitar work the band is known for.

As Maritato explains, “[Our last record] Busybody, Lazybones was written in a very intense time in my life. I had lost a lot of friendships, there were multiple deaths in my family, and I was buried deep in depression. It was chaotic. The only real constant light I had in my life at the time was music. The music I write is a product of my feelings. It has been a few years since I’ve written BBLB and there has been a lot of growth, self reflection, and healing that has taken place. “Pillow Top” is pushing more towards emo vibes with some sparkly elements; Which I feel is very much like my personality, hahaha. We have been working really hard writing this upcoming LP and I believe Pillow Top shows a glimpse of what to expect on the new record.”
