David West is a musical artist from Western Australia based in New York City. Cherry On Willow is his third solo record, following 2015's Drop Out Of Collage and 2016's Peace Or Love. The 9-track collection is the work of West and the Teardrops, an ensemble of friends and collaborators, including Bob Jones of Eaters, Louis Hooper of Rat Columns, Mikey Young of Total Control and Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Raven Mahon of Grass Widow, dynamite drummer Griffin Harrison and other supremely talented individuals. The recordings were quite live and spontaneous, hoping to catch some of the magic involved in speed and improvisation, harvesting creative sparks from his musical colleagues and himself. The album was recorded quickly and with a 'first thought best thought' philosophy, to capture an old-school pop feeling, with rough edges intact, human movements tracked and uncut...swiping liberally from various strains of underground pop, glam, rock'n'roll, synth-pop and disco along the way.
