Single Review: Fat Freddy’s Drop: Pull The Catch

By on Thursday, 13th November 2008 at 9:53 pm

Do you like your roots/dub/reggae/jazz/soul with a “down under” tinge? Something a bit different from your Kooks / Automatic / View Radio 1 sanctioned pap? Well, rejoice, as New Zealanders Fat Freddy’s Drop are going to release their second single “Pull The Catch” from their forthcoming album, “Big BW”

Sunny, jazzy, laid back and all out gorgeous, “Pull The Catch” has you dreaming of summer all over again – those sunsets over the beach, those festival moments as the sun goes down or those late night dalliances in a tent somewhere far from home.

Born out of a fishing trip at home on New Zealand’s South Island, vocalist Dallas and his Uncle returned to the group to record the song in their beachside studio, one of the easiest tracks of the album to record.

If you want to find out more about Fat Freddy’s Drop, read this Guardian article, catch the video below, or just buy the single (out 1st December) from all good download stores and those few music stores that still stock singles (we reccomend Record store).

Cracking band, FFD. And a hell of a live experience too. This single is exactly as good as everything else they’ve ever touched, and that’s brilliant!
