Getting high on hope, Fat Freddy’s Drop are releasing a brand new single 'Trickle Down' on July 20.
Freddy’s annual summer roady around New Zealand in Jan 2019 gets a super-charged tune up with the addition of some incredible tour bus buddies; DJ legend Norman Jay MBE direct from London plus local super stars Ladi6, Salmonella Dub featuring Tiki Taane, The Black Seeds and Troy Kingi with more to be announced. With fresh tour destinations added to the menu, Freddys are are about to serve up one massive summer tour.
Brand new track 'Trickle Down' is an electronic-driven reaction to the politics of the day – the false economic principle of wealth trickling down from the 1% to the 99%. As they sing of running out of patience while waiting for the rain to fall, a confident, steady beat propels us forward as a sign of promise.
Recorded at the band’s Bays studio in their Wellington hometown, the track arose from a series of jams and is a slice of the new album they’re cooking up as a follow-up to their earlier releases; Bays, Blackbird, Dr Boondigga & The Big BW and record breaking Based on a True Story.
Trickle Down will be released digitally on July 20 with a 12” release to follow later.
