Transgender music pioneer and cult solo acoustic artist Shawna Virago has released the latest single “Last Night’s Sugar” from her new studio album ‘Heaven Sent Delinquent’ (Tranimal Records). Available on vinyl, CD, download (CDBaby, iTunes, Amazon) and streaming (SoundCloud).
“Shawna Virago is more punk than the punks” – SF WEEKLY
The album’s second single ‘Last Night’s Sugar’ is “a harrowing tale of late-night escapades and works off her haunting vocal delivery and solemn acoustics” (Obscuresound.com).
‘LAST NIGHT’S SUGAR’ is dark and intimate, a longing to abandon the heartbreaking reality of economic ruin and return to a sweeter past. _”Some people have no surprises in them / You can set your clock by their routines / I’m watching my baby lose his paycheck / To rigged slot machines”_
