The Ruffcats – Shifting Sands feat. Rapturous (2017)
When it comes to funk, soul, and hip-hop with an original vintage sound, The Ruffcats are the most important band in Germany. They have proofed that on the instrumental albums „The Essence Vol. 1-3“ more than once. For ten years they worked as a backing band for funk and soul artists, but meanwhile created a strong trademark of their own.
Lately, The Ruffcats are in the studio again, but not to record another instrumental album. For the first time, the band is producing an album with lyrics of their own. „We wanted to know how is sounds when we are telling stories in our songs. When working with lyrics, you write songs totally different than when writing instrumental music. You write differently, you play differently and you produce differently. To combine this with the classic Ruffcats sound is a great task that gives us completely new options“ tells singer and guitarist Botond Ikvai Szabó.
„Shifting Sands“ is the first single release from the upcoming album. It tells the tragic story of a refugee, which is more important to look at than ever, facing the political changes of the last weeks.
