New Orleans-based Americana band Hurray For The Riff Raff performed "The Body Electric" from their new album, Small Town Heroes, last night on The Late Show with David Letterman. Watch it above.

The band puts on a haunting performance, beginning with lead vocalist Alynda Lee Seguerra alone on acoustic guitar, as strings and percussion gradually enter the song and grow in intensity. The stark performance ties in well with the song's harrowing lyrics. "The Body Electric" is full of powerful yet grim lines such as, "Tell me what a man with a rifle in his hand is gonna do for a world that's so sick and sad."

Small Town Heroes is available for purchase on iTunes. You can watch the band play songs from the album on KEXP right here at Zumic. For Hurray For The Riff Raff's latest news, music and tour dates check out their website.
