SUSS offer up an appropriately frigid video for their cut “Winter Light” off of the upcoming Promise. The band’s ambient country shines through, even in the bitter cold and all encompassing grey that’s coming for us in just a few short weeks. The song utilizes slides and synths to create a mournful, almost inconsolable darkness around the song. While there’s an argument that pedal steel can be the secret weapon of great country, here the band wields it to a devastating effect. The accompanying video dims the sun with scenes of snow covered stillness thats an apt pairing for the song. The new record is out December 4th from Northern Spy.
