Sarah Shook & the Disarmers Biography
North Carolina alt-country band Sarah Shook and the Disarmers have announced plans for their second LP Years to be released on April 6th and given an early preview by sharing the song "Good as Gold," which you hear above.
"Good as Gold" builds on the downtrodden country rock of the band's debut LP Sidelong, with a lean, unfussy arrangement that emphasizes tautness and Shook's caustic, quavering vocal attack. Addressing a lover who dangles the threat of leaving over her, Shook responds that she's more concerned with losing her heart and pride than losing a wayward lover. Given that scenario, she concludes that it's probably best to not drag out the inevitable: "Baby, if you go, it's over for good. And I'm as good as gone," she sings, and it sounds like a promise.
