Lock up your bass bins! Perennial soul shakers Fat Freddy's Drop are ready to lift the lid on their new album Blackbird.
Fresh from a run of barnstorming, sold-out shows across Europe in late 2012, where they road-tested and refined the music that has formed the basis for their third full- length studio album, Freddy's are bristling with new ideas.
The third full-length studio album from the seven-headed soul monster documents a rich period of writing, recording and playing, and continues the band's aim to stretch themselves by integrating diverse styles and approaches into their music.
The writing and recording of Blackbird has seen Freddy's increase their armoury of drum machines and synths, pushing their sound deeper into the realms of Afro- and dub-laced electronica.
