With so much new music hitting the scene in 2014, Kings and Comrades has just been added to that list with their newest single “Right Time” which is going to be the first single off their first full-length album, which is tentatively set to be released in late April.
If you didn’t know these guys, Kings and Comrades is a seven-piece outfit that represents the growing number of prominent Philadelphia based reggae rock bands. 2013 was a big year for K&C as they were featured at California Roots Festival, and I believe 2014 looks to be an even bigger year with the upcoming release of their debut full-length album.
“Right Time” was recorded at the Uarts studio at the Merriam Theatre in Center City [Philadelphia].
“It was engineered by our trumpet player, Rick Rein, and myself. We recorded the drums, bass, and sax there and layered the guitars, keyboards and vocals at our home studio. The entire track was produced and recorded soley by the band. The style of the song is in a reggae lovers rock style. We like to write love songs are influenced by a lot of lovers rock artists like Dennis Brown, Alton Ellis, and Bitty McLean to name a few,” says frontman, Jeff McCaughey.
Jeff continues on, explaining “..the song’s inspiration is just that feeling you get when you are in love with someone and no matter what is going on, it always feels right when you’re together. The song has a mellow, laid-back feel to it that is reminiscent of our signature style,”
