John J Presley

Having recently released his debut EP ‘White Ink’, John J. Presley has revealed a new music video for ‘Sweet Superstition’.

In homage to memories bleak and battered, the track sees Presley coming to terms with loss, death and relentless bad news as his molasses-thick vocal simmers over a Travis-picked Hofner guitar growl, delving deeper further into John’s trademark doom-blues repertoire.

Citing Son House’s Mississippi Delta blues and Mogwai’s dissonant tunings and drones as influences in equal measure, Presley’s no-frills approach to the blues is rooted in his distinguished record collection and penchant for vintage guitars, approaching the White Ink session heavily armed with a Tele, Hofner and Gibson all frying through his trusted Wem Dominator amp.
