On April 21, 2021, Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz - who over the past decade achieved grassroots success as Mandolin Orange - announced that they are now called Watchhouse.
Their new album, the first under this new name, represents a reinvention as a band at the edges of subtly experimental folk-rock. Challenging, charming, and an inspired search for personal and political goodness, these songs offer lessons about what any of us might become when the night begins to break. The first single "Better Way" pairs their songcraft with sonic explorations that signify a new sense of confidence and ambition for the band.
