The Dead South – Sugar & Joy

The characters on the Dead South’s third album Sugar & Joy do what they must, even when twisted logic leads them astray. From the opening galloping strum to the lower register cello and deep backing vocals, the song's moody mania captures The Dead South's stock-in-trade, stories of desperation and bad decisions told in fast-paced, brightly-laced bursts. Sugar & Joy is The Dead South's tightest, weirdest and most exciting studio work yet.
