“Bounding Main” is the third single from The Rumjacks’ forthcoming EP, out March 18th. Pre-order it HERE.
“Bounding Main” is an explosive and infectious tune that perfectly utilises all the best elements of the Celtic Punk genre. Galloping out of the gates with the strong banjo, mandolin, and accordion lead, the track pulses with energy that could wake a sleeping giant. The song writing utilises modern techniques that bring dynamics with a minor key half way through the verse. Unapologetic in its rowdiness, heavy Australian accents belt the chorus with the confidence of a drunken karaoke singer on a Saturday night.
Invigorated by the release of their fourth album“Hestia”, The Rumjacks quickly went back into the studio to record “Brass for Gold”EP,capitalising off their new sense of artistry.
Johnny McKelvey from the band said: “After the amazing response we had from Hestia’s release, we knew we had to back it up, do it justice and show we aren’t messing around with any of this”. “If you are passionate about what you do, you can’t sit on your hands and do nothing. We love this, it’s so much fun! Why wouldn’t we want to create more music together at any chance we could?”.
The resulting EP a clear representation of a band finding a new voice and making sure that voice is heard as loud as possible. Grounded by the eclectic Celtic punk sound that The Rumjacks have become synonymous with, “Brass For Gold” sees the band dig deeper into their ska and hard rock influences, all the while holding onto the defiant energy that ignites their sound.
