BELLFURIES, THE : Workingman's Bellfuries
The Bellfuries debut on Hi-Style Records, Workingmans Bellfuries, hoists the band to new heights, drawing upon a deep well of musical styles.
Early country, rockabilly and 80s pop sounds are woven throughout eleven tracks, with Joey Simeones soaring lead vocals
reminding listeners that this record isnt some dusty artifact plucked from the archives.
With razor-sharp, groove-oriented production from label owner and acclaimed producer Jimmy Sutton (J.D. McPherson, Pokey LaFarge),
Workingmans Bellfuries is a refreshing iteration of The Bellfuries sound; tinkling boogie piano, driving double bass rhythms and innovative-meets-traditional rockabilly guitar licks make the album an easy fit for a juke-joint dance floor.
But it is Simeones vivid songwriting--his exploration of the complexities of love and loss-- that makes Workingmans Bellfuries instantly relatable to every listener. Dont let its mid-century aesthetics fool you; Workingmans Bellfuries is a vibrant contemporary rock and roll record.
