MOLOTOV JUKEBOX have announced that their second album Tropical Gypsy will be released via Pause For Effect Records on 15th April 2016.
The album demonstrates a tumultuous whirlwind of Latin influenced horns, accordion and violin – all closely bound together over guitar, bass and drums by the infectious vocals of musician and actress, Natalia Tena (the “wildling” Osha in Game of Thrones.)
Incorporating newly found sounds collected first-hand on a tour of South America last year, the band has added flavors such as samba and Colombian cumbia to their existing Balkan influences.
Famous for their fierce and fiesty performances worldwide – in both English and Spanish – none of their undeniable live energy was allowed to escape during the recording process.
And now they release a new single ‘Pineapple Girl’ in anticipation of the album.
We had a listen –
A military tumble of drums opens up this fan-faring juice ball of equatorial delight.
The pace is apple-bobbing lively. And the voice is a joyous meow… Velvet and understated.
Yep! This is tropical fruit bubblicious …
