This week’s ReverbNation featured artist on Zumic is New Jersey based Zak Smith Band. Listen to “Tombs Don’t Roll Back” above.
The song starts with a New Orleans style drum roll, and settles into a fun Americana rock groove with lots of colorful sounds that show inspiration from the kings of New Jersey rock and roll, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. What I also love about this song is the gospel feeling from the backup singers and organ. It’s the kind of music that fits your Saturday party and then your Sunday recovery.
“Tombs Don’t Roll Back” is from the band’s 2013 album, The Precambrian Age. Their next album, Signs of Life, is due out in October of this year. For more from the Zak Smith Band, check out their official website.
