The band showcase two tracks off their new record Rattlesnakes.
The Strumbellas have partnered with Vevo for the release of their live performances of I’ll Wait and The Party off their new album. Rattlesnake, released 29 March via Glassnote, was recorded on the band’s home turf in Kingston and Toronto, Ontario, is a musical step forward from the to-the-rafters scrappy folk aesthetic of their earlier work.
For the album, The Strumbellas, made up of Simon Ward (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), David Ritter (keys), Jeremy Drury (drums/percussion), Isabel Ritchie (strings), Jon Hembrey (electric guitar) and Darryl James (bass), teamed up with producer Tim Pagnotta (Walk the Moon, Elle King) and co-producer Brian Phillips, with the goal to capture the electricity of their live show with a decidedly more stylistic upbeat bent. Check out the stunning live performances below:
