Rag 'N' Bone Man - Hard Came The Rain (Video)
Are you one of those so called ‘music fans’ who believes that the likes of hip-hop, pop, and electronica aren't ‘real types of music’ or even isn’t music at all? Are you one of those rockist bores who has got a bit moany and signed this petition against the fact that Kanye West is headlining Glastonbury, calling his appearance 'an insult to music fans all over the world'? Do you believe the dated and frankly ridiculous philosophy that pretentiousness and ego has no place in modern music?
If you answered yes to any of those questions then we have some good news for you, because today we’re streaming the new video from Rag ‘N Bone Man, and this one’s full of big guitar riffs and firmly masculine vocals. You’ll probably like it. It probably fits your narrowminded f*ckwits view of 'real music' and 'talent' and 'honesty'.
We agree that it's bloody good.
But if you are one of those sad people who seems unable to acknowledge that:
1. You bought a ticket before the line up was announced and therefore need to accept that the line up may not meet your expectations. It’s a bit like an old age pensioner booking a mystery coach tour and then complaining when it ends up in Hull because they were expecting Devon.
2.Glastonbury festival has a multitude of stages – you don’t need to stay at the Pyramid if you don’t like what’s on.
3. The diversity of music and the new stones that it turns over is a beautiful thing.
4. Glastonbury Festival isn't run just for your personal enjoyment.
And if you do think that only rock acts should headline Glastonbury, then you’re probably also the sort of person that thinks that you should only have sex in one position, because ‘that’s the way it should be done’, then we also have news for you.
Because guess what? Rag ‘N’ Bone Man doesn’t just do rock. He does blues, he does soul, he does gospel, he does funk and yes, HE DOES HIP HOP AS WELL.
Rag ‘N’ Bone Man gets it.
Here's his new video. Enjoy Hard Came The Rain, which Rag ‘N’ Bone Man explains as follows: “I came up with the idea of the video half way through the writing process. I was inspired while watching True Romance and seeing the high energy and the tension between the couple. I wanted to convey the frustration of a volatile relationship.”
See you in the fields of Glastonbury (possibly) – a festival that represents all musical types for all the people, not just those who only enjoy the musical equivalent of just the missionary position in Devon.
