While there is a lot of warmth in this Byrds-esque alt-country track, there is blood in the streets. The video for “Sure Enough” by the Portland-based artist juxtaposes this slide guitar, Fafrisa Organ and laid back twang with images of (mostly) males who are through sublimating their desire to destroy things and taking it outside. Devoid of context, these displays of toxic masculinity seem almost romantic in the way they stare down their opponent before beating the shit out of them. Tolerable and sanctioned violence is just a form of dancing, anyway.
