Elektric Voodoo Releases New Song “Wake Up”
- American rock band Elektric Voodoo, consisting of Scott Tournet (guitar, vocals), Matt Bozzone (drums/percussion, vocals), Ty Kiernan (congas, timbales, percussion), Travis Klein (tenor sax, keyboards, guitar, percussion, vocals), Brad Nash (baritone sax, keyboards, percussion, vocals), and Luke Henning (bass, vocals, percussion), announced their upcoming third studio album “Telescope” will be released on August 20, 2021.
From the album the band unveiled a new song “Wake Up” on May 21, 2021.
Frontman Scott Tournet said of the song, “It's a pop song craft and production dealing with a heavy topic, yet an ultimately optimistic message. At first the refrain 'can't let go' is referring to their addiction but by the last chorus 'can't let go' is referring to this new, healthier path that they have found. Funky verses, soaring choruses, and a bridge that sounds like Quentin Tarantino made a movie somewhere in the Middle East.”
- The new album comprises of 9-track. It is their first LP in three years.
The band recorded the album at Studio West in San Diego as it can accommodate the large band with added musicians in the live room to capture the excitement of a real “performance”.
Scott Tournet said, “This is the most collaborative record we have made to date. It is also the first time we've recorded as a full band. The first record I recorded the instruments one at a time. The second record, we recorded bass, drums, guitar, and percussion first and then added horns, vocals and keyboards later. Since we had been touring, rehearsing, and playing together so much we really wanted to capture the energy and the spirit of the band, together in a room, performing the songs. Sonically, it's a couple levels up than anything we've done.”
