Just William

Always on the lookout for good bands, especially ones from Iowa, Just William is a refreshing breath of air in a state dominated by blues, alt-country, and metal (I’m a fan of all three, but variety is refreshing). Based on the bio section that has each member giving their personal take on Christian music, I’m assuming that’s what they consider themselves. Musically, they’re a sometimes poppy, sometimes crunchy blend of genres, falling somewhere between BNL and Creed. Most of the songs seem to be about love, both lost and found. Regardless, it’s refreshing to hear something from Iowa that isn’t flirting with the cookie monster metal spawned in the wake of Slipknot’s success.
