Rafael Vigilantics once again breaks down musical boundaries with the release of his new single “Ramblin’ Bones.” The new single was unveiled last week via Purevolume.com and tastemaker website The Deli has premiered his new music video this week. The video has peaked interest from fans and industry alike for its avante-garde undertone and stunning cinematic qualities.
Formerly a Portland based artist who blurred the line between Hip-Hop and folk, Vigilantics has now taken a step further into experimental rock and folk sprinkled with grit and soul. As a gypsy crooner, Vigilantics uses his haunting, unique voice to craft music that is unpredictable, beautiful and memorable. Now located in Los Angeles, he has been actively putting the final touches on his new album Orleans.
Vigilantics is a storyteller, and knows no confines with his musical expression and puts an emphasis on making music that requires a visual pairing. He partnered with director Sarah Remetch to bring the story of “Ramblin’ Bones” to life, which gives life to a track that feels pure, honest and timeless. The video is visually stunning and quickly captivates the viewer with his brutal honesty and dark narrative.
In late 2016, after completing a tour with Onry Ozzborn (Olddominion and DarkTime Sunshine) & Rob Sonic (Aesop Rock), Vigilantics hit the studio to start work on his latest album Orleans. The album is currently being recorded by Sanford Parker (Voivod, Local H) and co-written with Noah Harmon of the Airborne Toxic Event. While not on the road, Vigilantics is busy writing music for film and recently partnered with Blue Mics to use “Ramblin’ Bones” in a series of videos demonstrating their top performing products.
The Huffington Post calls Vigilantics “The Iggy Pop of Hip-Hop and Music Felon describes his sound as combining the “unique sounds of hip hop with train robber folk.”
