The Skinny: After three years of touring and world wandering behind 2008’s critically acclaimed Golden Hour, Firewater resurfaces with a new full-length titled International Orange!. The album is set for release on September 11th and as a head start you can already today grab a free download of the lead song “A Little Revolution”.
International Orange!, produced by Tod A and mixed by Tamir Muskat of Balkan Beat Box, carries on from where their previous collaboration, The Golden Hour, took off, slipping across new borders into uncharted territory. Created in Istanbul and Tel Aviv during the 2011 Arab Spring, their latest release captures the frenetic pulse of a world in the state of flux. The songs tap into grooves as disparate as Turkish maqsoum, Punjabi bhangra, Jamaican ska, Greek rebetiko, classic punk and old-school mambo.
