Three Legged Fox – “When The Colors Come Back”
“When The Colors Come Back” Background:
Originally planned for a December 2013 release, Three Legged Fox pushed their new album We Are Electric back for a January 21st release. This will be their 4th full length album and will include 12 new tracks. They recorded out of Soundmine Studios with producer Dan Malsch.
Our very own Andrew McClatchy and Bill Colbridge were invited into the studio during the recording process and was documented in our In The Studio: Three Legged Fox article that you can read by clicking HERE.
Here’s what Guitarist/Vocalist, Kyle Wareham had to say about 3LF’s new song, “When The Colors Come Back”:
“…Colors’ is one of the songs that we have had in the works for quite some time. We knew it would serve as a throwback to our personal style of reggae, which has always had more of a rock-pop vibe, rather than a rootsy one-drop vibe. On the last album, we used a lot of synth sounds and samples, and we knew we didn’t want to do that this time. We wanted to ‘keep it real’ so to speak. We had to beg Chris Duddy (lead guitar) to play flute on the intro to ‘Colors’, rather than take the easy route and add it in later synthetically. We also changed the chorus to this song at the last possible minute on a whim. Little stuff like that made working on this album an experience we won’t forget.”
–Kyle, Wareham, Three Legged Fox
Three Legged Fox Background:
It takes a collection of experiences to understand where you’re going. With no perspective, it’s impossible to know what you’re good at or what you want to do going forward. The new album is We Are Electric, and it comes twenty eight months after their last release. And though long overdue, that time has allowed Three Legged Fox to gather both experience (more than three hundred shows in forty three states) and the clarity to write music that authentically personifies who they are as a band, and as people. Sometimes the best thing one can do, is to acknowledge what he or she does best. For this band, the ticket lies within it’s simplicity — turn up the guitars, drums, and keys, and deliver songs about what they know.
We Are Electric, the bands fourth album since coming together in 2006, is a step forward, yet a return to the garage; a nod to the reason the whole thing was started. And it’s that kind of perspective that anyone in any facet of life can appreciate.
