Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats made their television debut this week on The Tonight Show. Host Jimmy Fallon praised their soulful music, which roused the audience from their seats.
They performed “S.O.B.” from their self-titled album Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. The mood goes from soulful sermum on alcoholism to a wild party reveling in it. “Son of a bitch!” Rateliff yells. “Gimme a drink.” The catchy song moves you not only pyshically but emotionally. It’s like Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” except it’s about the happiness is at the bottom of a bottle.
Rateliff’s dance steps were also infectious. Fallon and guest Mamie Gummer did their best to recreate the deceptively simple moves but they were left frustrated and no doubt cursing SOB!
Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats release date: August 21, 2015.
