TVD Premiere: Jack Ellis, “The Barrel of Your Gun”

Cardiff’s Jack Ellis has returned to our ear drums with an even fuller sound than before, and this time he means business. Here at The Vinyl District, we’re extremely proud to be premiering the latest single, “The Barrel of Your Gun,” taken from his forthcoming EP “Out Of Luck” in stores on the 7th of September 2018 via District South Records.

Ellis’ latest cut is a powerful slice of grit-fuelled blues-rock from the offset. As the chorus comes into full force, you can’t help but stomp to the beat and hum along with the free-flowing, choral backing vocals. At the centre of all this, of course, is Ellis’ rough and ready emotional lead vocal that compliment his impressive blues-infused guitar. And that guitar solo at the end, wow.

Of the song Ellis explains, “It’s a track that was loosely inspired by the David Lynch movie Wild at Heart. Crazy lovers on the run from an angry mother, a private detective, and a hit man tracking them down. What more do you want? So yeah, a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde where everything is risked in the name of love.”

“Barrel of Your Gun” is in stores on 10th August 2018 via District South Records.
