Celtic rock band The Rumjacks premiered the video for its latest single this week.
The band opened the week by unveiling the video for its single, ‘Rhythm of Her Name.’ The single is featured in the band’s newly released album, Hestia.
The video features the band performing its new single in a cabin setting. Various angles and lighting are used, as well as a woman seemingly rising from the dead as footage of a woman plays. The visualization in question would seem to hint at the song being an ode to a woman that the song’s subject once loved.
Front man Mike Rivkees spoke briefly about the video treatment in a prepared statement.
“‘Rhythm of Her Name’ is one of those songs that only can arise out of tragedy,” he said. “With ghastly undertones in both lyrics and video, the combination of the two has created some of my proudest work as both a songwriter and filmmaker. Being able to intertwine these to tell a full story (without giving away the song’s true meaning), has made this one really shine.”
The musical arrangement featured in the new single presents a similarity in sound and style to works from Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, but far more subdued in its sound and stylistic approach. The repetition in the chorus ensures the song will get stuck in listeners’ minds.
In other news, the Rumjacks is scheduled to tour in support of its new album next year. The tour is scheduled to launch Jan. 25 in Liverpool, England and to run through Feb. 26 in Belfast, Ireland. It features performances in cities, such as Glasgow, Scotland; Oxford, England and Bideford, England.
