Track: The Rumjacks – Rhythm Of Her Name

The Rumjacks have shared the video for ‘Rhythm Of Her Name.’ The track is taken from their new album ‘Hestia,’ which was released in March (read our review here), and follows the announcement of an extensive UK and Ireland tour in 2022.

Vocalist Mike Rivkees (who also directed and edited the clip) says,

“Rhythm of Her Name is one of those songs that only can arise out of tragedy. With ghastly undertones in both lyrics and video, the combination of the two has created some of my proudest work as both a songwriter and filmmaker. Being able to intertwine these to tell a full story (without giving away the song’s true meaning), has made this one really shine. “

A jaunty acoustic Irish tale of love coloured with well placed melodic runs and a steady drum beat. A crowd pleaser for sure and one that will fill many a hall with voices raised high. Sung simply and beautifully, giving a moment to just stop and listen.
