The new album features guest appearances by members of John Brown’s Body, The Motet and more. Eufórquestra laid down tracks for Fire, their first release to utilize an outside producer, at Scanhope Sound studios in late 2013. Hollingsworth enjoyed the process telling us, “Euforquestra rocks! This new disc is a great combination of all their musical styles and influences. From note one, it feels great and the disc has nice flow. I had so much fun working these guys. They are great songwriters, singers and instrumentalists, plus they are pretty cool guys to hang out with. This music will be in your rotation for a while.”
We think the title track gives a good taste of the funky, 14-track effort. Eufórquestra’s Mike Tallman tells us about it, “‘Fire’ is the funkiest track on this new record. We really wanted to go for a heavy, dirty groove with a huge horn sound and a big gang vocal hook. Matt Wright (keyboards) wrote the original arrangement for the song and Kyle Hollingsworth helped us mold the groove in to a nice, gritty pocket. This one is guaranteed to get your ass movin’!”
