Widow Pills

Hailing from the land where the ghost of southern music lingers like a closet full of the clothes of a deceased loved one. Clothes that you cannot bring yourself to get rid of, partially rooting in the inability to let go, partially rooted in the feeling that you wince at the thought of even going into that closet; a ghost whose presence is not so much seen as it is felt. While ignoring this ghost is futile, these guys know there’s much more to this ghost called southern music than red solo cups and economic disparity. Simple songs and arrangements presented in a fairly traditional setup based around an acoustic guitar and vocal, but that’s exactly what made early country music, early blues, and much later (with speed and volume added for good measure) punk rock so fantastic. A sound all-together familiar but not derivative; one that stems from an array influences and life experiences all united by the eccentricity of the South. A sound built on late-night porch storytelling, cold beer, family and friends, good food and good people. Music doesn’t have to be complicated to be great and Widow Pills are here to remind us of that fact.
