Fresh off earning positive reader reviews for late-July promo cut Stellar, Johnny Rain returns to our pages with a brand new single selection off his DJBooth-hosted debut mixtape. On this erotically-charged jam, the unsigned crooner draws inspiration from the Biblical story of the Battle of Jericho, drawing an analogy between the city’s famous walls (which were brought tumbling down by the Israelite army’s trumpets) and the metaphorical barriers around his woman’s heart. In addition to delivering the steamy verses, Rain hooks up with co-producer Nova to craft the intricate, atmospheric synth beat. The artist’s first major video, Tishaun Dawson‘s (non-work safe) clip underscores the record’s sensual vibe. Fans can find Jericho and much more on Johnny Rain’s Lullaby of Machine LP, available now for free streaming and download.
