Rusty Shipp

Today, HM is proud to premiere the new music video for “Detonator” from Rusty Shipp. The four-piece band from Nashville sports a sound that mixes The Beach Boys with Nirvana with Muse with surfers, and the latest single embraces their unconventional rock combination. The song comes from the band’s album, Liquid Exorcist.

Also interesting is the concept behind that album, pulling from the World War II-era then-newly minted underwater fighting. We spoke with vocalist Russ Shipp about that concept.

“‘Detonator’ is our most surf-rock song to date, pulling ingredients right out of the ’60s craze. … Lyrically, this is the definitive snapshot of our upcoming concept record Liquid Exorcist and really dives in (pun intended) to this forgotten story of sea mine terrorism in the ’40s from a first-person narrative.”

You can keep up with the band over at Facebook and Twitter.

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
