VIDEO: Big Jesus – “Shrimp” (Live from Thunderbox)

Big Jesus - ShrimpFirst and foremost, Big Jesus have become known as a band that churns out crushing melodic post-hardcore built on monstrous riffs and soaring grooves. But the band has also proven themselves quite adept at tackling more contemplative and gentle material, as highlighted by the recent release of another self-produced video recorded at their Thunderbox practice space (if you haven’t seen the group’s previous Thunderbox video for “Again,” it’s well worth checking out).

In a nice respite from their usual bombastic roar, “Shrimp” find Big Jesus throwing their hat into the space-rock arena by channeling Hum and Jupiter-era Cave In. It’s a song that initially forgoes big-guitar drama in exchange for dreamy delays and atmospheric textures, but still finds room to pummel you with thunderous blasts of distortion before it’s all said and done. Watch/listen below.

“Shrimp” appears on Big Jesus’ debut LP, One. It is available for purchase/download via Bandcamp.
