When frontman Chris Lin, bassist Sky Tai and drummer Tai-yun Chen met in 2007, they were interested in creating a new musical identity, one replete with refined poetic lyrics and smart musical arrangements. Drummer Rain Lin joined in 2010, adding a touch of jazz to their already flavourful sound.

On the surface, Windmill's music is neither excessively affected nor overly-complicated, yet their lyrics sung in Taiwanese, Mandarin, English, and sometimes Japanese possess tremendous depth. Their songs are as illustrious as any novel in presenting unique stories, portraits, and landscapes that explore the complex realities of modern life in Taiwan.

Compared to the likes of Wilco, Galaxie 500, and Neil Young (Taipei Times), as well as Taiwanese folk-rockers Lin Chan and Wu Bai, the band has released two EPs, and is currently completing their first full-length album.
