The song is a catchy, foot-stomping number, and the decision to film a prison-performance style video enhances the vintage, soulful feel of the track. In the interview, they talk about getting the idea from the last scene of the Blues Brothers movie, and making fun of serious situations like alcoholism and being in jail.
Rateliff and company are also touring extensively this summer and fall. Be sure to check their tour dates to see if the band is playing in a city near you.
