If you haven’t yet let out a “holler and a moan” while listening to J. Roddy Walston & The Business’ stand-out tune “Heavy Bells” from their new album Essential Tremors, now is your chance. The official music video for the track debuted yesterday via VICE’s Noisey and takes the viewer into the “Essential Tremors Inner Peace and Community”, where members are shocked, shaken and taught the ways of the band’s music.
Endlessly shifting from snarling and stompy to warm and soulful, Essential Tremors has a scrappy yet sublime sound that honors the both band’s Southern roots and punk spirit.
Currently traveling across the country in support of the record, Rod & the Business will be making their way around the West and South this month before heading back to the East coast at the beginning of November. Head below to see which upcoming date is closest to you.
