Interview: The Sam Willows

Formed in mid-2012, soul-folk quartet The Sam Willows have been steadily making waves on the local music scene ever since they dropped their hit single, ‘Glasshouse’. Comprising Sandra Riley Tang, Jon Chua and siblings Benjamin and Narelle Kheng, the band released their self-titled debut EP three years ago, followed by stints at international music festivals like SXSW in Texas and WAM Festival in Perth. They also worked with five-time Grammy award-winning producer Steve Lillywhite on a remixed version of ‘Glasshouse’. Safe to say they’ve kept busy in the past few years, what with their constant appearances at local gigs and music video covers of pop tunes like ‘Blank Space’ by Taylor Swift and Kodaline’s ‘All I Want’. Before their long-awaited debut album – which they recorded with producer Harry Sommerdahl in Sweden – comes out later this year, The Sam Willows chat with Michelle Fong about what went into the record-making process.
