They just released a killer new track that you all should know about, called “I Won’t Be Far”, and it’s definitely one you gotta download and jam to this fall season.

With her nose ring, considerable height, and youthful demeanor, she looks like she could just as easily be a member of a Bikini Kill cover band, rather than a purveyor of a more “old-timey” sound.
