Fat Freddy's Drop - Bays
Sonic fourth studio album from Fat Freddy's Drop, BAYS draws on the lexicon of genres that have come to epitomize the bands’ sound.
Opening with the slow burn funk of ‘Wairunga Blues’ the album journeys through a hybrid of reggae, jazz with techno rhythms underpinning Freddy’s signature horns and Joe Dukie’s soulful and introspective vocal, arriving finally on the crooked blues jam of ‘Novak’. The album exudes the confidence of a band truly comfortable in their skin.
“It’s been a more creative process writing this album in the studio rather than recording songs which have been well road-tested”, Freddy’s vocalist Joe Dukie said.
