The Magic Lightnin’ Boys – “The Ride”

lightnin boys

The Magic Lightnin’ Boys procure a vein of music that’s comfortably notalgic, steeped in blues and swamp-rock influences that remind instantly of classic-rock greats like The Allman Brothers and ZZ Top. The Cincinnati-based quartet shows their gritty bluesy captivation throughout new track “The Ride”, which is the lead single off their new album Stealin’ Thunder, out May 6th. Casey Gomez’ lead vocals alternate between a soaring howl and nonchalant swagger, giving way to a great harmonica solo just after the two-minute mark, where the percussion resembles a stampede and the guitars glide along effortlessly.

Check out the track’s live music video below:
