Fat Freddy's Drop have released "Shady" the first single from their forthcoming album 'WAIRUNGA' which is set for release, Friday 20th August.
"Shady" continues Freddy's Afro-Acid adventures with Fitchie’s beat-making tapping into a South African township brand of techno of which Freddys experienced on tour. A visit there in 2016 opened their eyes and ears to the wonders of township culture, with the local brand of techno - known as Amapiano - settling deep within the band's musical brain. Years later its fingerprints are all over Fitchie's beat-making on this track - paired with Dukie's incantatory vocals, delicate synths and richly harmonised horns.
Watch "Shady" get the live treatment via the upcoming 'WAIRUNGA' Concert Film being live streamed on on Sat 31 July at 9.00pm, plus a repeat screening on Sunday 1 August at 8.00am. You can watch the premiere broadcast online for free at Fat Freddy’s Drop YouTube and Facebook.
