Country Dons Are Back With A Bang On High-Energy "Backwoods"

Country Dons Are Back With A Bang On High-Energy "Backwoods"

March 01, 2023

They've been a little quiet for the past few months, but Country Dons are back with their new single, "Backwoods".

Produced by GW and Gore Ocean, this is Country Dons at their rowdiest, kick-your-door-down best. Between the chopped-up bass pattern and vocals on the hook, there's an echo of the kind of Jersey drill experiments that have been doing the rounds, and it's given their tales of stacking racks and bending backs an irresistibly punchy energy.

Matching that hype, director Aaron Fitzmaurice turns in a white-knuckle video that switches back and forth between shots of the Dons making movements under cover of darkness and popping bottles in a lavish, luxury apartment.

Last year saw Country Dons score some pretty major wins, releasing their debut album and taking their live show to bigger and bigger stages. While we wait to see how they top that in 2023, hit play on "Backwoods below".
