Sweetly eerie goose bump blues.

About the Album

Our sophomore album Western Soul is due for release on March 9th and we are releasing our haunting arrangement of St. James Infirmary in anticipation. Here is an apt description by the site PopMatters - "Pereira thrives as a lead singer and frontman handling this arrangement, never quite being swallowed by the grand tinges of rock and gospel that they invoke into the song. Instead, the entire band delivers their take on "St. James Infirmary" with a sort of slinking and dark agency. Their cover will be available on Western Soul come March 9th."
