Workhorse – “Defeat”

Workhorse is a new project comprised of various musicians from Adelaide, Australia. Members of bands like Wireheads, Fair Maiden, Rule of Thirds and Hydromedusa. The band is releasing their debut, No Sun, on the Brisbane-based label, Tenth Court.

The teary slow-rolling lead single, “Defeat“, is the most somber of the bunch. Mixing in the harkening drawl of slide guitars and windy chords, the track evokes images of road-worn tenderness and the fieriest of prairie sunsets. Harriet Fraser-Barbour’s hollow vocals paint a comforting veil, relaying that being on the losing end gets to the best of us.
