Relix magazine premiered the video for “Jah Werx”
this week off SUSTO's new album & I’m Fine Today
, citing Bob Marley as a major influence for the track. The band also clarified that while “Jah works” is a Rasta term for “God is good” or “God is working,” the guys reinterpreted the phrase “in terms of our own reality and understanding of the universe.”
The band told the magazine, “It’s a song about community, about being there for one another when it’s needed; but also it’s a song about the cyclical nature of life and existence. So many lifetimes have been lived on this earth, but at the end of each one, a body returns to the ground and rejoins the rest of nature. I think it’s beautiful that we all get to experience that cycle and see the miracle of life on earth.”
Nashville cinematographer Matthew DeLisis
directed the video.
