Video: Ural Thomas and the Pain – “Pain Is The Name Of Your Game”

Ural Thomas immediately flies out of the gates with billowing, vocals for this groovy but bitter love song. A heavy horn section also lends a funky swing to Ural’s tale, while crashing drums incite as much energy as the soul master’s hoots and hollers.


The band puts down this powerful opener without breaking a sweat, check it out!
