“Our society gets off on labelling every product, brand, relationship and band. To be typecast and pigeonholed into a narrative created by someone else is something musician Haley Dahl is consciously avoiding, having formed Sloppy Jane in 2014 as a multi-layered music project between friends who wanted to manipulate boundaries and crush preconceptions.
Now, 2018 is bringing in a new horizon following Dahl’s decision to pack up and move from LA to New York. With new sights in tow and a constantly fluctuating band that includes everything from choir vocals to xylophone, saxophone kazoo, television sets, slide whistle and many more, Dahl is ready to push sonic walls to the point of collapse.
And the proof is in the debut record, Willow. A brilliantly ambitious and visceral piece of work, the ten-track LP tells the story of a girl named Willow who existed in a strip club in Inglewood and ran away to the Mojave desert to hustle pool with a lion only to ultimately be burned alive for her sins and buried at sea alongside her best friend.” -Hero Magazine, March 23, 2018
