Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son Release Timeless “Empty Passenger Seats”
This track is “New Jersey” in the truest ways. It’s got a Springsteeny, Gaslight Anthemy vibe, with heart and soul well beyond Mahoney’s years and a guitar riff that’s just an all-out mother fucking rocker. “Empty Passenger Seats” has that indescribable timeless quality to it that just makes it feel like an instant classic, that has a vintage feel without being dated. There’s an unbelievable amount of energy in Mahoney’s music. This is the type of jam you play air guitar to. Shamelessly. Like whether or not people are staring. Fuck it. You can be a rock star too. Just like Bobby Mahoney. You get in your wide stance, strum your cords, bang your head, throw a badass kick when the chorus hits so everybody knows what’s up. That’s what this tune’s about. Head banging, high kicking, speeding down the fucking highway with an empty passenger seat, being twenty-two years old and euphoria of your life not being over yet. Adam McGuire
