New video and EP from Angie and the Deserters – ‘You’

A country-folk song in the grand tradition of great break-up tunes, ‘You’ is the title track from the brand new Angie and the Deserters EP. Accompanied by the melancholic but compelling video above, the song is something of a slow burner, but infused with lyrical feeling throughout.
