Lord Sonny the Unifier – Don’t Be An Asshole | Psych Biker Rock
Brooklyn based alternative act Lord Sonny the Unifier has a well titled rocking new single titled Don’t Be An Asshole. After Howl, this is the second single from his upcoming album America’s Newest Hitmaker.
The project is helmed by Gregory Jiritano. Jiritano has been deeply into music from his childhood. At age eight, he began playing guitar. Formed his first band at the age of twelve. At age sixteen, he began playing at New York City bars.
The song begins with a catchy meaty riff that catches your attention right from the beginning. With the right doses of retro electronic sound effects and vocal harmonies especially during the chorus, this is a tight and energetic song. The song features a super catchy rock beat with good use of tones and production finesse. Guitars and the bass provide the apt job of carrying the rhythm of the song forward. We get a retro feel that give a sense of power, energy, and rock. The song never drifts and delivers on groove and style. It contains a scenic tight circadian rhythm in motion by Lord Sonny the Unifier.
The band is inspired by The Clash, The Beatles, and Motorhead while also looking inspired by modern acts like Viagra Boys, the Black Keys, and Queens of the Stone Age. Much like a phoenix, Jiritano arose symbolically and literally from a recording studio fire in 2015. Since then, he has had several singles, EPs, and albums in his discography. This is alternative rock and what Lord Sonny the Unifier calls Post Punk biker psychedelia. And god is it good!!
