Another exclusive premiere arrives on Crave today, this time from improvisational soul rockers Jesus On The Mainline. The New York collective are about to release their soul-stomping new single “War,” and we’ve got the jump for your listening pleasure.
The band’s signature blend of funk and bluegrass calls to mind the likes of The Black Crowes and Joe Cocker, through a fifteen-piece ragtag filter of New York’s finest young musicians. The group is led by Grammy-nominated musician Andrew Neesley, and first made waves with their soul-blast cover of Nirvana’s “Lithium”. Now check out “War” below, featuring a rising sound that swells like a wave as it blends the spirit of Aretha Franklin into a soulful dance-romp through territories inhabited by Fitz and The Tantrums, Portugal The Man and beyond. Turn it up and have a listen, exclusively on Crave.
