The JUNO Award-winning bluegrass band from the prairies, The Dead South, dropped a new video on Monday for “Fat Little Killer Boy”.
The track comes off the Regina band’s 2019 full-length release, Love & Sugar, which is nominated at for Traditional Roots Album of the Year at the JUNO Awards this year.
According to the band’s press release, the music video for “Fat Little Boy” depicts an animated cautionary tale, showing off “bad endings for bad apples”, centered around the titular, fat little boy. The animation was done by Edmonton’s Rantdog Animation Studios.

Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
