The band's first two albums are primarily influenced by the popular music of the late 1950s to early 1960s. With their third album Into the Light, Weeping Willows took a stylistic turn towards a more modern sound with alternative rock leanings.
The lyrics typically deal with unhappy love, loneliness and heart-ache.
In 2005 they were the at place 80 on the most played bands in the Swedish radio (with a top position of 5 in 2002). Most played songs are "Touch Me" (7th most played song in 2002 in Swedish Radio) and "Stairs" (8th most played song 2004 in Swedish Radio.)
The band has collaborated with Oasis member Andy Bell on several occasions. Weeping Willows guitarist/keyboardist Niko Röhlcke has also collaborated with English guitarist and singer/songwriter Marty Willson-Piper on a project called MOAT. They are currently working on their second release.
