Shawna Virago – “Last Nights Sugar”

Shawna Virago’s new studio album Heaven Sent Delinquent brings more of the strengths that has earned her a steady following throughout the years, being lyrically focused songs that deal with everything from universal heartache in an oppressive, dusty town to transpeople struggles specifically. “Last Nights Sugar”, a harrowing tale of late-night escapades in Mobile, Alabama, works off her haunting vocal delivery and solemn acoustics — with the “give me a taste of last night’s sugar” hook conveying a yearning for escaping the rising waters. The ten tracks throughout the release show considerable versatility, considering it’s an acoustic release, thanks to the strong lyrical conventions and alternating vocal tones.
