In real history, the SSNaronic was a ship that mysteriously vanished in 1893, with no record to show of its passing except for several messages left in bottles that washed ashore and were allegedly written by passengers while the ship was sinking. The lyrics to Rusty Shipp’s SSNaronic were taken straight from these written messages, but the band brings out more of the philosophical and theological angst they imagine would have been present in such a hopeless scenario. Accompanying the single is an animated music video that shows a surprising and imaginative twist on how the tragic fate of the SSNaronic could have actually had a happy ending! Watch here
Rusty Shipp is a Nautical Rock’n’Roll band from Nashville, TN, named after the front man, Russ T. Shipp. Their goal is to make thought-provoking music that is as creative and catchy as the rock legends. SSNaronic is the latest single from their debut album, Mortal Ghost. The song is a gnarly, heavy-hitting, grunge rock ballad with an infectious hook in the chorus and experimental guitar riffs throughout.
