In the winter of 2016, KC Stafford started working on new material with collaborator Rick Maguire in an attempt to shift gears after the sudden break up of their former band, Woozy. From this collaboration came the songs "Cold" and "Iron" (based on an original by Maguire known as "Blood”), which will be released as the eighth installment of Saddle Creek’s Document Series. "Iron," at its core, is about longing. It explores the feelings of loss and frustration that the harder one tries to hang on to a fading love or a sudden inspiration the faster those things slip away. The refrain "I want to feel its love all the time" is taken directly from Maguire's song "Blood" though it changes the original refrain of "I want to see its blood all the time" to "love" and builds an entirely new song around this premise. "Cold" was inspired by a winter sunrise at a gas station in Oklahoma. The cold, weak sunlight and endless-seeming flat plains stretching in every direction inspired an intense feeling of loneliness and desolation that the song tries to capture. It's also a reaction to the terrible end of the band Woozy, repeating a desperate refrain of "try not to think about it" in increasing fervor til the sudden end. Treadles began in the summer of 2011 as the solo project of KC. It was a lo-fi, folksy, bedroom pop experiment with their father, who was learning to record music as they were learning to play guitar. From this collaboration, Treadles grew into a live band, performing in backyards and at acoustic events and featuring a rotating cast of players from projects such as Sun Hotel, Caddy- whompus, Donovan Wolfington, Shark's Teeth, and Museyroom. After a break to focus on life and other projects, Treadles reformed in the fall of 2016, now a loud, dynamic, grunge-pop project with a more permanent line up including members Rustle Pants, Emily Hafner, and Ian Paine-Jes- am. 2019 sees the addition of guitarist Sedef Switch. Members play in a variety of other projects including Little Death, Shark's Teeth, Dowsing, Ratboys, and Thou. Previous releases include a 6 song EP out on Community Records entitled Bees Are Thieves Too.
