The Rose of Sharon has withered and turned black. This winter was too much for it. Or at least that’s what it sounds like happened according to Owen Sound band Black Country.

From their debut self-titled album out January 29th, “Rose of Sharon” feels like a drawn out spell of grief and is a perfect companion for your S.A.D. Joshua Richardson’s shrouded baritone stalks the song’s haunt-folk-country soundscape to provide a chilling effect. But despite the bleakness of this track, Black Country ultimately offers us teeth-chattering, hoodie-wearing, wind-burnt, January-warriors some comfort here by letting us know we’re not alone in our sadness.

Bundle up and take a whiff of the “Rose of Sharon” below:
