Fat Freddy’s Drop

Fat Freddy’s Drop

Triple whammy from Fat Freddy’s Drop! The acclaimed band is dropping WAIRUNGA a bush alchemy album and concert film like no other with an Aotearoa New Zealand tour to celebrate the surprise release.

WAIRUNGA finds the Freddy juggernaut digging deep to debut five songs and revisit two classics captured in an outdoor performance sans audience with wild weather elements playing an important creative role.

Freddys embark on the national WAIRUNGA Album Release Tour in September taking in some of the country’s top venues, starting at the iconic Christchurch Town Hall and a long awaited return to Dunedin to play the Town Hall. Both shows feature special guest Harper Finn. Freddy's roady continues at Nelson Trafalgar Centre and Wellington’s Michael Fowler Centre with Special Guest Deva Mahal. Finals shows are Auckland Town Hall and Hamilton’s The Factory with Special Guest Rubi Du.

In lieu of international touring, Freddys have been exiled to their BAYS studio using the time to jam and boil up songs at their leisure. Freddy trumpet alchemist Tony Chang says with a swag of fresh material ready for road testing all they needed was the right space to perform and record. Wairunga high above Waimarama Beach got the nod.

Wairunga is a place etched into the DNA of Fat Freddy’s Drop who’ve roamed here for over 20 years; to party, relax between tours, make a song Wairunga Blues in its honour and even to get married. Farmed by the Parker family for a century, Wairunga is an oasis of green pasture and native tree filled valleys that fall away to the ocean below.

Throwing caution to the trade winds, literally, Freddys and their sound and visual recording crews set up on a grass tennis court surrounded by a forest backdrop. The weather was calm but as the performance progressed into night the elements turned with tempest-like bursts of rain and chill winds. Freddys dug deep to finish the session, nothing could stop the bush energy and music.
