Sad Daddy Premieres New Single “Cold Rain”

Arkansas/Texas four-piece roots powerhouse Sad Daddy has released “Cold Rain,” the latest track from their forthcoming LP, Way Up In The Hills, due out on January 28th. “As soon as you hear it, it makes sense that ‘Cold Rain’ was recorded in a studio out in the wilds of the Arkansas woods, looking out on a lake, breathing in the overwhelming depth and vastness of the American landscape,” says Holler. in their premiere. “’Cold Rain’ blends [Joe] Sundell’s scratchy box-banjo sound with Rebecca Patek’s yearning fiddle in this simple and strangely uplifting song for simpler times that sounds like the soundtrack to the pre-apocalypse.”

“I thought about the loss of control we were all going through, both as individuals and as a society, and how it made some of us feel like the walls were closing in,” bandmember Joe Sundell tools Holler. of the song’s inspiration. “In trying to come up with some imagery that depicted that in some form, I imagined the last two verses – first a guy whose life is turned upside down and finds himself in a hole at the bottom of a lake, and then the idea that if things keep progressing the way they are, we all have to jump into this new reality and learn to swim.”
