Sonnymoon are a quirky duo – part indie-kid, part electro-hop. They released a free album not so long ago, Golden Age which is a mixed bag (according to me) – it’s definitely interesting and different, I just can’t figure out if I like it or not. But, I will say that their cover of Drake’s Housatlantavegas is pretty darned brilliant. They manage to hit that melancholy mood just right, highlighting the surprisingly touching melody and effectively conveying the message – “We know strippers say they like their job, but we all know it just ain’t right, so stop frontin’ and put your clothes on before I’m forced to give you a dollar because you’re working your ass off after all and I feel bad even though I don’t want to encourage this type of behavior.” Or am I just reading waaay too much into it?! Well, I guess y’all know how I feel about strippers now.
