Willow Smith Is Obsessed With The Best Band

What if Girlpool and Willow Smith collab? What if God was one of us?

April 30, 2015

A couple days ago, precocious soul singer and nascent existential thinker Willow Smith had a virtual kickback with, like, 1500 of her closest friends. A FADER editor chatted her a question about one of her SoundCloud deep cuts, and she responded by putting on the song and unselfconsciously singing along. Her pet snake, Genesis—who's a lot smaller than the snake that was making the rounds at Travi$ Scott's birthday party—was looped around her neck like a scarf.

After that, she queued up "Plants and Worms," a track by the California-bred, Philadelphia-based band Girlpool, a pair of teenage girls who write stripped-down punk songs with just a guitar, a bass, and their goosebumps-inducing harmonies. We were psyched, cause we love Girlpool around here, but we weren't surprised; young Willow has been gushing about the band on social media for some time now. She invited the girls to hang out in a tree with her via Twitter, and the other day she made a cameo at an L.A. house party where Girlpool played an acoustic set on the floor.

I wonder if Bill Murray was there?
