The Bellfuries are coming to Spain for the first time as part of their tour promoting their latest album Workingman's Bellfuries. The group's surprises us with their rockabilly style, fusing rock with jazz, blues, and pop sounds, and harking back, almost as if by chance, to great rock ‘n’ roll artists of yesteryear.
The Bellfuries brought out their debut album in 2001 with Just Plain Lonesome. On this first record, Brian Setzer, just as he did first with his group Stray Cats, tried to modernise rockabilly and turn it into something modern that could not be pigeonholed.
Their music has explored various different musical sounds, which has brought them as many fans as it has detractors. This is true of the leap they made between their first record and Palmyra, where folk influences are much more evident.
With Workingman's Bellfuries the group is returning to their rock roots, inspired by the 1950s with songs that evoke great artists, such as Make the Mystery No More which harks back to Phil Spector, or harmonies that are reminiscent of Elvis on Why Do You Haunt Me. Whatever the case may be, Workingman's Bellfury promises to be a record filled with classic rock but with some modern twists.
