Latest update from Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival :
Regular Belladrum favourites, the Highlands own Spring Break are set to release their debut album ‘Tropicaledonia’ this Friday 13th April.
Formed at Belladrum 2014, the band described our own Joe Gibbs as their ‘hands off mid wife’.
Released on the 13th of April through all the usual online download and streaming services. Preorders available now from: www.springbreakscot.bandcamp.com/releases
Join us on a journey of ambitious diversity, exploring a broad palette of influences marinading in a melting pot of multiple genres. Jazz, folk, funk, soul and rock are woven into a rich tapestry of kaleidoscopic highland hip hop, awash with a summery haze of vintage sounds bound together by psychedelic silkworms and technological trickery.
For the last year the band have been working on their debut album Tropicaledonia; a fusion of many styles, drawing influence from a rich palette of folk, funk, blues and jazz whilst all the while steeped in the cut and paste traditions of hip hop. We hope the musical diversity of the record will appeal to a wide range of tastes as it draws from the varied backgrounds of all the band members and collaborators. Lyrically it’s a highland reportage on the human condition; detailing daily stresses, mental health, drinking culture and addiction, small town mentality, lampooning back stabbers and the foibles of the industry and pointing a clown gloved finger at toxic masculinity.
