The Jab debuted the second single from its new album this week.
The band debuted the song ‘Dank Mississippi‘ Friday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album Consume. The LP is scheduled for release Tuesday through Medicine/The Orchard.
‘Dank Mississippi’ presents a musical arrangement that will appeal to fans of the southern rock genre that is similar to the arrangement at the center of the album’s lead single ‘Riot.’ The first acts that come to mind in considering comparisons are Zakk Wylde’s very first band, Pride & Glory,’ ‘Black Stone Cherry’ and Charm City Devils, in examining the song’s arrangement. The song is available to stream and download now through Spotify, Apple Music and The Jab’s official YouTube channel.
The song’s lyrical content comes across as possibly a commentary of sorts. Front man Jam Alker sings in the song’s lead verse, “Tip my hand in the river/Make me quiver/Let it kiss me/On the banks of the dank Mississippi/Hold my hand till the preacher man gets me/On the banks of the dank Mississippi/Cold, dark, dank Mississippi.” He continues in the song’s second verse, “Hold my hand in the river/Make me shiver/Then deliver me/On the banks of the dank Mississippi/Give it to me slowly/Let the holy water hit me/On the banks of the dank Mississippi.” He adds in the song’s third verse, “Strip my bones in the river/Let me wither…/In the dank Mississippi/Carry me home/Who’s gonna carry me to the light in the dank Mississippi?”
