Nettwerk Signs Nine-Piece Melbourne Outfit The Bamboos To Its Label Roster
Nettwerk Music Group is excited to announce the signing of Melbourne-based, nine-piece neo soul/indie pop outfit The Bamboos to its label roster. Their new album, Fever In The Road, will be released on April 1, 2014.
Listen to album track "Avenger" below:
The Bamboos are the brainchild of band leader Lance Ferguson, who initially drew inspiration from the instrumental raw funk of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, but the band’s sound and style is in a constant state of evolution, keeping fans and critics alike on their toes and unable to pigeonhole. For Fever In The Road, Ferguson co-produced the album with ARIA-nominated, multi-instrumentalist studio wizard John Castle (Josh Pyke, Kate Miller-Heidke, Gossling), whom they worked with on their previous, three time ARIA-nominated album, 2012’s Medicine Man. Fever In The Road sees Castle and Ferguson venturing into sonic landscapes The Bamboos have previously touched on but never fully inhabited; there exists an aural complexity and depth that allows darker moods to roam through the album, with vocal duties split between Kylie Auldist and Ella Thompson, who bring contrasting yet complimentary styles.
The Bamboos have created a dedicated tour following thanks to their dynamic live show, which has gotten people dancing at festivals and packed clubsall over the world. In the past, they have collaborated with the likes of Aloe Blacc, Lyrics Born and Daniel Merriweather. As the go-to band for tight and heavy vibes, they have also performed as the backing band for international artists including Eddie Bo (US), Syl Johnson (US), Joe Bataan (US), Eddie Floyd (US), Betty Harris (US) and Alice Russell (UK).
They have also been a favorite in the film and TV world, with songs featured in such popular series as Grey’s Anatomy, CSI New York and One Tree Hill, as well as the hit film Crazy Stupid Love.
A North American tour is in the works; stay tuned for more details.
