AUDIO: Johanna Rose & Sugar Ransom – “Hunter’s Moon”
Singer-songwriters Johanna Rose and Sugar Ransom teamed up for a new EP on Halloween, featuring one song penned by each. “Eat the Rich” is by Rose; they channel their anger of the times through lyrics about uprising and class consciousness as both acoustic and electric guitars flutter. “Cold Ones” is by Ransom; over a piano melody she sings of drowning sorrows in alcohol to cope with world grief. It’s a fitting release for Halloween; while it’s normally spooky season, many are scared by how much disarray our realities are in with seemingly no end in sight. Burn it all down, as they say. Hopefully this release can help validate what you’ve been feeling.
