Holy Roller Roars With New Song, ‘When The Rain Came Down’ (Review)
Holy Roller frequently deliver eletric performances. Having recently played Big Draft Brewery in West Virginia, the band blew the roof off the joint with their special blend of Americana and blues.
Brady Heck’s voice is like a torrential downpour and Rebekah Rafferty’s harmony as the gentle gurgle of runoff from a hot tin roof. Such is also the case with the band’s brand new song “When the Rain Came Down.” Drums roar, piano twinkles, and the sweet sting of additional harmony (courtesy of John Hulley and Sam Koff) twists in the arrangement.
“When the rain came down, I was wasted / You can run / You can ride / But oh my, my / It’s going to find you / Find you when you’re all alone,” the band crows with blistering edge.
“We poured our heart and soul into making this little track and are stoked to finally share with you all,” the group said on Instagram. And goodness, does their hard work pay off in dividends. “When the Rain Came Down” is a career-best song, as their first ounce of music in 2023.

Out of Richmond, Virginia, Holy Roller have made it their unspoken mission to inject Americana music with a bit of adrenaline. The group released their self-titled debut record in 2019 and followed it up with two singles in 2022, “Belly of Abraham” and “Flat Track Fire.” Fingers crossed “When the Rain Came Down” samples a new record (it’s about time!) – it’ll surely be their best yet and hopefully send them catapulting into the sun.
