We’re only just writing our album now, but we’re going to have songs, but songs treated differently so the structures aren’t what you expect. It’s got to keep the interest and not just be trying to do what’s current.”

Videos For A Lazy Sunday: Port St. Willow’s ‘Soft Light Rush’

Port St. Willow, the solo project of Portland-based singer Nicholas Principe, has released this video for the track from their new album Holiday, out now on Downtown Records/Maple Music Recordings.

Principe started the project after a series of cross-country moves that saw him eventually settling in Portland where he recorded his first EP Even//Wasteland in the fall of 2010.

Holiday was recorded over the course of a year and explores the themes of family and self as well as new and old homes.

“It felt somewhat as though it were a process of building different rooms in the same house which I could go spend time in and keep myself sane,” Principe said in a statement. “Where Holiday plays as an awakening, “Soft Light Rush” is an acknowledgment of change, transition and the wading through these things together.”
