They Call Me Old Man by JUNK- Dirty D and Dubl A, follows Chromatose, their fresh album. They make it a point to have fun with jazz and Rock ‘n’ Roll masterfully. It is a gritty and cheeky track that captures the spirit of blues. It throws in their rock ‘n’ roll instincts with a tinge of rap.
The saxophone and the shaker sets the ambiance right from the top. Then the lead’s voice comes in like a powerhouse spitting lyrics like it’s nobody’s business. The guitar work paired with the saxophone exudes this sizzling chemistry that elevates the experience of the listeners. The song addresses people who get called “old man” for varied reasons. This could be because you’re actually old or because you choose to do things your own way. Never the less, the track is here to tell you that you’re dope no matter what because you’re still calling your own shots. Don’t let the haters dim your light because you know what you want and you know who you are. It doesn’t matter if you’re old or young.
Ramy is a series that deals with the troubles of living in a modern world and having to understand faith. All this while being the son of immigrants. Ramy Hussain must be applauded for his brilliant sense of satire, and dark comedy instincts. “They Call Me Old Man” would fit right in because the treatment of the music is so similar. Each character- old or young have their own strong storyline but each one comes together to form a great story much like a Jazz Band.
Overall, They Call Me Old Man and JUNK is an excellent example of modern blues-rock, with a fresh take on a classic soundscape. Dirty D and Dubl A have listeners across the world and It is only growing. Check out their brilliant body of work!
