Family Force 5 To Deliver III Next Month
III marks a dynamic shift for the group, a return-to-rock sound that resurrects the heavy guitars and bombastic beats of their debut. Opening track "Can You Feel It" explodes with searing guitars and vocalist SOLOMON's distorted voice slices through the boom-bap of tumultuous drums.
"Our goal was to make jock jams for the future," Derek (guitars) says about the album opener. "At the time, we were listening to a lot of Sleigh Bells, and we wanted to create something mean and gritty. This track gets people hyped up, and it perfectly sets the tone for the rest of the album."
Unadulterated energy ties the band's unstoppable genre-hopping as Family Force 5 explores low slung bass booms and harmonica howls on "Wobble" and the tongue-in-cheek "scenie baby" call-out pop song, "Tank Top." These are songs for blaring at maximum volume, blasting from a sweaty club or a low-riding pick-up truck. "III sounds like rock and roll with barbecue sauce," DEREK laughs.
