New Album: Fat Freddy’s Drop – Bays

:: Always unmistakably.


Introducing BAYS a 9 track boil up heralding a fresh chapter in Freddys fantastic voyages. BAYS opens with slow burn funk of ‘Wairunga Blues’ journeying through a hybrid of reggae, hi-tek soul and jazz with techno rhythms underpinning Freddy’s signature horns and Joe Dukie’s smooth & introspective vocals, ‘Slings And Arrows’, ’10 Feet Tall’, ‘Wheels’, ‘Razor’, ‘Makkan’, ‘Fish In The Sea’, ‘Cortina Motors’ and arriving finally on the crooked blues jam of ‘Novak’.

BAYS is named after our Wellington studio homebase, where the album was predominately written and recorded around beats, food, darts and a winter of content.

“It’s been a more creative process writing this album in the studio rather than recording songs which have been well road-tested” Joe Dukie said. [Press Release]
