A strong sense of mojo and a slinky groove elevate this sensual invocation of love.

These two ladies have their style dialed in: bandolera fatal, with an outlaw vibe and a bold use of color. Heavy attitude, and a clear sense of originality inform this mid-tempo pilgrimage from original solitude to the verdant plains of rapture.

"Fire" is featured in Yellowstone Season 2, and sounds a bit like singing cowboys with a drum machine. Strong mojo and a slinky groove elevate this sensual invocation of love. While trading vocal duties and performances on guitar, bass, banjo, and autoharp, this enigmatic duo is keeping their identity a secret for now.

Oscar Wilde famously opined: give a man a mask, and he will tell you the truth.

Bad Flamingo is what happens when two bandoleras steal said mask for their own provocative truth-telling.

This song is featured on our CHILL New Songwriters playlist and this lyric video will broadcast next week during episode 2 of Indie Music on Tap.
