Daughn Gibson's "It Wants Everything" is a slinky, sizzling slice of Southern Gothic [Premiere]

30 April 2015, 11:30 | Written by Laurence Day

Daughn Gibson is readying his long-awaited third album Carnation, and ahead of that, we're pleased to be showing off his new single "It Wants Everything".

It's a slinky, sizzling piece of Southern Gothic cowboy-pop: whiskey-soaked guitars slither through rattlesnake rhythms and Gibson's inimitable baritone croon - imagine if Ian Curtis was raised in Louisiana. It's a subtle track, never wavering into over-cooked pastiche, instead slowly bubbling up and over the pan. Flecks of The Kills and Timber Timbre creep in, and although overtly sinister, Gibson's new single is indescribably erotic. This is Carnation's bad boy, dressed in leather and smouldering in your ears.

According to the press release, it's "written from the point of view of a drunk and belligerent "jester of circumstance"".

Carnation is out 8 June on Sub Pop.
