Riff: The Band Perry – “Better Dig Two”

Jan 9, 2013

Heavy stone right next to mine/We’ll be together ’til the end of time/Don’t you go before I do/I’m gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two

from Better Dig Two lyrics by The Band Perry

“Better Dig Two” is the Band Perry’s foray into new wave country. And it works to some effect. But at times they seem like they’re stretching beyond their comfort zone, creating a slight, but palpable air of uncertainty.
