British slide guitarist Troy Redern has released a music video for his new single, “Gasoline,” available on August 19th.
“With Gasoline I wanted to write a positive, uplifting, good-time rock ’n’ roll tune,” says Troy. “Right now, we’re bombarded with a lot of negative news in the media. Lyrically, I wanted to put something out there that was the opposite to that. The groove of this tune is in 7/8, which isn’t a typical rock ’n’ roll rhythm, but I really love the flow and feel of riffing in this time signature, especially playing slide using the National resonator in a low tuning. The combination sounds huge.”
“Gasoline” is from Redfern’s upcoming album, The Wings of Salvation, available on September 23rd.
