Marijuana Sweet Tooth Share New Single

It’s been a few years since we’ve heard anything from Austin’s Marijuana Sweet Tooth, but they slink back into the music scene as if they’ve never missed a beat. They offer up some desert imagery on the single’s cover, and they ride off into the horizon on the back of a dark-tinged Americana. Vocals are traded between male and female counterparts, as guitar chords bend behind in the mix, softly accented by light percussion. It’s a welcome return in my book, and one that I hope comes with the promise of more new music in the very near future. Until then folks…

Hear a New Song from Marijuana Sweet Tooth

I’ve always wandered what exactly is a Marijuana Sweet Tooth, but I like to think its the band’s approach to songwriting, offering their listeners a relaxed calm that you’ll beg to revisit. They quietly dropped a new single this week, as solemn as one would expect, yet drifting in its sentiment. Guitars slide behind the vocals, while other notes are carefully strummed to supply emphasis to the voice. I love how the male and female roles seem to go back and forth with one another, yet they often share the same ideas. If you’re looking to fade away into the day, then press play below.
