“If deep, breathy dreamscapes and ethereal, mournful elegance are what you seek, you’ll find them here. ..Tears will undoubtedly follow, of joy and despair, and an overwhelming desire to dwell in this space forevermore.”
"...it makes you feel iike you're listening to music for the first time. Yeah, the album 'different stars is that good...."
Standing out from the pop and punk that dominate the sunny southern california music scene, trespassers william create their own brand of melancholy and ethereal music more suited for overcast days and quiet nights.
The music is rooted in the singer-songwriter tradition with touches of indie, folk, shoegaze and dreampop.
Often compared to red house painters, mazzy star, the sundays, and coldplay – the band creates lush, dreamy soundscapes to house singer/songwriter anna-lynne williams' lilting vocals and haunting songs.
Formed in 1997, the band has two records:"anchor" (1999) and "different stars"(2002/03).
