Zac Brown, Niko Moon, and Ben Simonetti revealed after a cryptic band announcement a couple weeks ago that they are Sir Rosevelt, debuting along with the news the world premiere for their song “Sunday Finest.” In a video, Brown shares that he and Moon have been working together for ten years – the two are frequent co-writers, and Brown signed Moon years ago to his record label. Simonetti engineered Brown’s last record with the Zac Brown Band, Jekyll & Hyde, which pushed the band’s sonic boundaries and explored new genre pairings.
Much like Jekyll & Hyde, the debut release from Sir Rosevelt doesn’t fall solidly in one genre. Trumpets meet a funky bassline for a song that spans both decade trends and genre lines. It’s highly danceable, with a visual pairing that’s colorful and bold. “It’s like painting with a whole bunch of new colors,” Brown says of the band’s creative directions. The trio are working on an album, to be released soon.
