When Gentlemen Rogues released their ‘Do The Resurrection!’ 7″ at the tail end of 2020, they gave the year one of its finest rock tracks. The melodic riffs, straddling a fine line between melody and distortion, harked back to the very best college rock of the 90s. The three minute banger carried elements of ‘Lick’ era Lemonheads, a massive love for The Replacements and even a bit of Sugar at their most melodic. For lovers of the style, it surely sounded like an instant classic – a reminder that so much retro sounding 90s rock is now capable of creating a wave of nostalgic feelings.
A couple of months on, the band are re-promoting the track with a new video. Although the clip isn’t the flashiest from a visual perspective, there’s just as much about its approach that feels as retro as the music itself, making it perfect for the job in hand.
Crank up the volume and re-acquaint yourself with 2020’s best should’ve-been-hit-single below. [A full review and stream of the 7″ release can be found here.]
