It's been five years since we last heard from The Deslondes. In that time, Sam Doores and Riley Downing have released great solo albums, but there's something just magical that happens when The Deslondes get together. They've just released "South Dakota Wild One," and that magic is back. The new song is sung by Riley Downing, and it has that folk/Americana sound that we've come to love from the New Orleans band, but with a twist. "South Dakota Wild One" doesn't sound like classic folk, or even remotely old timey. If anything, there is some indie rock fuzz coating the song. It has a great DIY/lo-fi feel to it that we think you're going to love.
You can listen to "South Dakota Wild One" below. Ways & Means is due out July 8 on New West Records, and can be pre-ordered and pre-saved here. For more on The Deslondes, check out the band's website. Upcoming tour dates are below the song.
