New York-based garage rock purveyor Dmitry Wild has released his new single ‘Rock-n-Roll Is My Business’ with ‘Son of a Gun’ as the B-side track. Both tracks are full of spunk and swagger.

Brand new music video for ‘Rock-n-Roll Is My Business’ was recorded in a castle upstate, New York called the Amsterdam Castle. (Hotel and a restaurant) The concept was to impersonate the hardest working entity behind the music business and to showcase “A day in the life of…” Riding to work in a black mustang, signing contracts, playing vintage guitar, dancing around. Among the cast, the Rockstar character was played by none other than Jesse D. Leach (Killswitch Engage) along with the secretary played by a burlesque dancer and an upcoming singer Tryst La Noir and Purple (Top pole dancer who appeared on Snoop Dog tour) and The Father was played by Byron Frayne.

Produced by Dmitry Wild, ‘Rock-n-Roll is My Business’ was mixed and mastered by Will Hensley (Coldplay, Travis, Dream Theater, Ben Folds, My Morning Jacket, The Wombats). The title track was recorded by Andy Cass at Sleeper Cave Records in Western Mass, MA and ‘Son of a Gun’ was recorded by Byron Frayne.

‘Rock-n-Roll Is My Business’ was inspired by an experience Dmitry Wild had at a business convention. When asked the question “What is your business?”, he understood he was at odds with the business people and other specialists attending the event, ultimately answering “Rock-n-Roll Is My Business’.

 Exuding confidence, he is accompanied by ever-present horns and funky, layered vocals while retaining the classic rock-n-roll figurehead framework.

As for the B-side, ‘Son of a Gun’ is a rock track that is full of swagger, the bright, eclectic music video reflecting the song’s alluring “world is my oyster’ mood.

Most recently, Dmitry Wild released the single ‘New York Stones’, a rock ballad dedicated to New York City, in July, following up his 2002 album ‘Electric Souls’, which presented a clever blend of 70’s vintage rock, 80s synths, garage rock, bluesy swash and post-punk DIY ethos.

‘Rock-n-Roll is My Business’ is out now, available at all online music platforms, including Apple MusicSpotify and Bandcamp, where Wild’s catalogue can also be enjoyed.
