I don’t know about you, but when it comes to me, I love that ancient video footage. Dead Confederate would agree; their new video for “Run From The Gun” is filled with old-time footage of wars and fights and explosions, manipulated with various effects and pieced together to fit the song’s calming, destructive power. The song departs from the band’s heavier rock sound, full of towering guitars and dreamy vocals. “Run From The Gun”, instead, is light with a hint of grit, lo-fi acoustic, and a playful beat. The two sounds would seem to contradict, but Dead Confederate plays them well on their sophomore release Sugar.
Sugar‘s diverse nature can be heard in the first three songs. Opener “In The Dark” begins strong and loud, and is followed by “Run From The Gun”. “Father Figure” explores a dreamy rock space with a focus on percussion and spacey, swirling guitars. Sugar is available now on iTunes.
