Clash Magazine Premieres RF Shannon’s “Tooth Ache”

RF Shannon’s new album Trickster Blues is out on May 4, and today the desert-blues outfit shared the record’s first track “Tooth Ache.” Frontman Shane Renfro says the track “is about being comfortable in your own skin, having the self-awareness to take it slow. The arrangement is steeped in an early 70s soul sound because that music has a mellow groove that just feels good. I tend to feel like all the right in the world when I’m slowly driving down old country roads with the windows down, so this song is kind of an ode to that vibe. I wanted to write a good backroad song.”

Trickster Blues is out May 4 on Cosmic Dreamer in the US and Fuzz Club in Europe and is available for pre-order now.
