Dead South delivered one of the greatest covers of “House Of The Rising Sun”.
Dead South is a folk band that I have found only recently.
And I do regret hearing about them so late. I thought I was familiar with plenty of americana and folk, but Dead South has somehow avoided my radar.
My first encounter with the band online was “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company”. It’s the exact kind of song that grows on you. In the end, you will whistle and hum along with the four gentlemen.
Their cover of “House Of The Rising Sun” is another gem among their works. I’ve heard many versions of that song, but this one is something beautifully fresh. I didn’t suspect that The Animals would sound so cool with a banjo!
