Oh it’s good to have The Crooked Fiddle Band back. No one does high energy, folk infused instrumental music quite like the Sydney based four piece, and their new single “Counter Errorism” does not disappoint. The track is an eclectic, high energy mix of time signatures and tones, leaping from gypsy jazz fiddle to ethereal vocals to deep bowed bass lines, all punctuated by The Crooked Fiddle Band’s crunchy, rhythmic sound.
“Counter Errorism” is taken from The Crooked Fiddle Band’s upcoming album Another Subtle Atom Bomb, released on 19 September 2019. They also have a bunch of live dates coming up – check them out here:
