The slow and dripping melodic feel of the Brothers Osborne’s single, Rum is one of those quintessential summer sounds of southern simplicity. Composed of brothers (shocker, I know!) T.J. and John, Brothers Osborne possess a rootsy sound that almost walks a line between subtle bluegrass and Chicagoan blues, all mixed in with a big ole’ spoonful of country. Rum, the second single off their up-coming album, has a melody that drips like honey over the listener, with a sweet down home sound and blues vocals that melt right along with the strong composition of instruments. It really is a fun song, and the video, filmed in their hometown of Deale, Maryland, captures the essence of a simple, carefree summer. From gatherings at local dive bars to morning fishing trips and crawfish boils, it brings a realness to the mid-tempo party track with the sing-a-long chorus; and let me tell you, that tune won’t leave you easily.
