True Detective opening and opening song written and performed by The Handsome Family are the best thing on TV since many Mad Men.
True Detective is propably the most acclaimed TV Series of 2014, starring Marty Hart and Matthew McConaughey. The HBO serie starts with the discovery of a woman’s body in a field of burned crops. A strange symbol has been painted on her back, and while the mistery is being solved, we watch a gallery of dark and creepy images. I’ll stop here because I don’t want to spoil it for you. If you don’t have HBO, since September True Detective can be watched from Netflix…go there immediately.

The song is great! The tune was chosen for “True Detective” by the music supervisor T Bone Burnett and the show has made it one of the Top 10 Most Viral Songs on Spotify in the U.S. and the U.K. Now, The Handsome Family band has released a new lyric video to make the song’s creepy and dusty atmosphere come to life. Happy sing along 🙂
