The world-renowned party purveyors of modern world music, Molotov Jukebox, return with their much-anticipated second album Tropical Gypsy, released via Pause For Effect Records on 15th April 2016. With all the makings of a fiesta floor filler, the eleven track offering displays a truly riotous whirlwind of latino influenced horns, accordion and violin; all tightly bound together over guitar, bass and drums by the infectious vocals of musician and actress, Natalia Tena. Incorporating newly found sounds collected first hand on a South American tour last year, the band have added flavours of samba, fohó and cumbia to their existing Balkan influences and Tropical Gypsy not only represents the birth of a new genre, but is also the perfect description of the free spirited philosophy and wanderlust that the band truly embodies.
Famed for their ferocious performances around the globe in both English and Spanish, none of the band’s undeniable live energy has been allowed to escape during recording and it was the last LP to be recorded and mastered at London’s now demolished Rollover Studio, sadly lost to developers in January 2016.
