DA Premiere: The Floozies prepare for headlining Red Rocks show with ‘Butt Rock’
After playing a sold out show opening up for GRiZ at Red Rocks just over a year ago, electro-funk livetronica duo The Floozies are coming back to the iconic amphitheater — this time as the headliners. Joining the party, and indeed doing their part in helping create it, are Russ Liquid live and fellow All Good Records artists Michael Menert and Sunsquabi.
In celebration of the upcoming show, The Floozies are giving fans a treat with a brand new track, aptly titled “Butt Rock,” as well as a free pair of tickets to the show October 8 (enter below).
“Butt Rock” begins by beckoning the listener with catchy layered vocal harmonies that have been a staple in many of The Floozies’ recent tracks. The retro-sounding vocals soon combine with big drum hits and a call-response between guitar and synth that bring the track together.
Once the drop hits, however, their salute to the rock of the ’90s takes a back seat to the bass of today. In classic Floozies fashion, each bass patch comes directly to the forefront and fills up a large part of the spectrum. Stringing runs and riffs of the bass together with short bursts of chords, guitars and vocals give that distinctive electro-funk sound.
The duo, which is composed of the brothers Mark and Matt Hill, were the first signees to GRiZ’s All Good Records imprint, no doubt due in large part to their extraordinarily unique and distinctive take on modern funk. They say it best when they describe the new track as “the musical equivalent to Thor riding around on a magical computer smashing things with his hammer.”
