Matt Sweeney & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy – “Make Worry For Me”

Drag City’s really been bringing it with the news on resurrected duos of late. After yesterday’s announcement of a new record on the way from New Bums, today sees a video from the now and forever Superwolves Matt Sweeney & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. “Make Worry For Me” follows on from their springtime gift of “You’ll Get Eaten Too” and the song scrapes through the more sinister, hunger-bitten side of the pair’s work. On their evergreen 2005 album the pair balanced menace and yearning, but here the wistfulness seems to singe away, replaced by a gaunt, rumbling sweep that swells to anxious palpitations and bared teeth. Sweeney burns off the bile with a fuzz-quenched solo ramping up expectations for what the duo is ramping up for. The video makes excellent use of Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe’s bunker installation ‘A Cell in the Smile’ adding to the nervous tension of the track. Check out the vid above.
