Wagons are back at last with their new record Acid Rain and Sugar Cane. Single "Why Do You Always Cry" is perhaps their most powerful song yet, spiralling down an emotional drain that is equal parts Lee Hazlewood and Nick Cave. The video - which has frontman Henry Wagons filming the band himself - captures the seasick feeling of the song perfectly.
