Yes! They’re back with a brand new video! There was no forgetting El Gato Del Rio after I had the pleasure of checking out their fabulously charismatic single ‘Honest Living’ back in January 2018. It will always be an absolute pleasure to drink in that decadently filthy guitar-driven groove orchestrated by the quartet who know how to bring a solid harmony to their archaically-inspired sound. With their single Cocaine, Whiskey, and You, you’re treated to grinding melodies, and reverberant alchemy which won’t fail to leave you wanting to don a pair of hot pants and head to your nearest dive bar. Yet, despite all of the sultry rhythm and suggestion of deviancy by the track title the lyricism is poignantly romantic, and dare I say it? A little sweet.
You can check out the video to El Gato Del Rio’s latest single ‘Cocaine, Whiskey, and You’ by heading over to YouTube now. Or why not head over to Bandcamp and treat yourself to a copy of their second album ‘Bellow the Bellows’. Nothing else will get you that intoxicated for $7.
