The last time 7 piece New Zealand group Fat Freddy’s Drop came to Australia last year, they left with the Sydney Morning Herald heralding them as one of the best live acts of the year. Following on from an immense Audio Visual show at the Sydney Opera House in 2012, they are set to tour their new album Blackbird across Australia in August and September.
Released Friday June 21st via Remote Control, Blackbird is an exceptional release in its own right. As a document of the band’s progression, it is something of a watershed record that perfectly encapsulates all influences of The Drop; with moments of Ethio-Jazz, Detroit Techno, Blues, Soul and much much more in the mix. Flanked by the early teaser Silver and Gold (which immediately went hi-ro on triple j) and the official singleClean The House, fans are only now getting a taste of what’s in store on Blackbird; some familiar vibes spiced with a whole new kettle of fish.
With international demand for the band at an all time high around their third studio album release, Freddys are set to embark on a second run of shows in Europe for 2013. The October European tour features 21 headline shows across UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Portugal.
