New York Rock ‘n’ Roll outfit Jeremy & The Harlequins have released their fourth full-length album, ABRA CaDaBRA on Pasadena Records. Though they’ve always loved classic Rock sounds, on this album particularly you can hear the sounds of the 50s & 60s combined with New York Garage style. Their latest single “One Shot (of Rock n’ Roll)” particularly revels in high energy classic Rock and has an accompanying video. The band will be performing a special album release show on Saturday, May 21st, in their hometown of Brooklyn at Union Pool.
Lead vocalist Jeremy Fury comments:
One Shot (of Rock n’ Roll) is a collection of four short stories. Each character in each of the stories is looking for something to cure their ailments. And to me, good rock ‘n’ roll is a shot of life. It can instantaneously jolt you from the pits of depression to the top of the moon. This song is not only the cure for the characters in the lyrics, but for anyone out there listening who wants to feel that there is some fun left to be had in the world.
The album ABRA CaDaBRA was recorded at Renegade Studios, owned by Steven Van Zandt, who has been an early supporter of the band, and member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, with producer Geoff Sanoff (Springsteen, Little Steven, Jesse Malin) tracking instrumentals. Producer Rick Parker (Lord Huron, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Scott Weiland) tracked vocals and the mixing and mastering of the album at Sandbox Studios in Hollywood.
