‘Tears In The Sun’, by Wisconsin-based band Double Ewes, is such a cool blend of synth and mournful folk. I love the singer’s voice and that drum kit beat.

“Should of. I could of. Could of walked away.
The root of, fruit of, truth of. Inviting me to stay.
They invited me the stay. I can take it. Just be honest.”

Check out Double Ewes on Bandcamp, where you can buy their music.

Cheers!
