Blitzen Trapper: Joanna

An acoustic tune strumming along the waves of a haunting narrative, Blitzen Trapper’s “Joanna” tells the tale of a woman who shoots the man that sexually assaulted her. The somber song comes complete with a first person perspective video of the scene the song depicts. It occasionally flickers over to lead singer Eric Earley serenading an empty room. The track appears on the band’s theatrical and political new album, Wild and Reckless. The band is presently touring the US.
