There’s something about the deep south in the new Nathaniel Rateliff sound. The sensual tones and subtle brass will sooth your soul while the balls-out rock and roll choruses will shake your windows and rattle your walls. The times are a-changin’. Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, the new seven piece ensemble fronted by the bearded songsmith, have already sold out London’s Lexington twice and garnered rave reviews for the live show. Fan favourite ‘SOB’ is the lynchpin of the set and the prison takeover video for the single harks back to the days of the chain gang, with more than a touch of Johnny Cash at San Quentin about it. Their self titled debut album will be released on 21st August on the legendary Stax label. Until then, listen up and get down to the soulful sounds of ‘SOB’.
