"Chrissie Hynde with a drawl"
Inspired by artists such as the Sex Pistols, Elliott Smith, and Hank Williams, Sarah Shook sings with confidence, control, and, at times, a hint of menace. The Disarmers match her, coloring the tales of resilience and empathy with urgency and broad sonic sweep. It’s easy to hear Sarah as a close cousin to artists like Hurray for the Riff Raff and Margo Price, and she makes hard-core country music for a modern time. “You’re as good as gold/ I’m as good as gone,” she sings with a mix of vulnerability and defiance. Says Tidal: "Sarah Shook entered the spotlight as one of the most important new voices in new country music. Like she’s been there all her life." L.A. folk-punk musician Sunny War opens.
