Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of The Handsome Family with their new single "Skunks"

The Handsome Family, songwriting and marriage partners Brett and Rennie Sparks, venture into the realms of nature, unearthing the mystique of our surroundings. In the mischievous and enigmatic video for "Skunks," Brett's haunting voice narrates, "Squirrels in the basement / Raccoons in the walls / Centipedes with stingers," delving into the world of the urban creatures coexisting in their Albuquerque dwelling.

With eerie whistling and rascally piano, we can almost see through the eyes of these critters, witnessing their lives intertwining with their human counterparts in an ethereal dance. The Handsome Family beckons us to shed the technological shackles that bind us and reconnect with the awe-inspiring magic of the natural world surrounding us. It's a song exists as its own distinct realm.

The band's signature dark country filter weaves a mesmerizing tapestry of the world we share with creatures big and small. Every note invites us to unplug, breathe in the beauty of nature, and embrace the wondrous mysteries of life. The Handsome Family, probably best known for their theme song for True Detective season one, are preparing to release their tenth studio album, Hollow on Sep. 8.
