“Southern Sky” is built around gently chopped guitars and features dreamy vocals from Emily Yacina. It comes accompanied by a trippy music video from frequent collaborator Elliot Bech. The surreal cartoon follows a wolf on his misadventures through a seedy desert town. Those unsettling images pick up on the feelings of alienation in the lyrics, providing a contrast to the breezy guitars.

Watch the clip below.

Preorders for House of Sugar, which follows 2017’s acclaimed Rocket, are now ongoing. (Sandy) Alex G will tour the US starting in October before trekking to the UK and Europe. You can buy tickets here.
