Gala Drop - Sun Gun

Portuguese collective Gala Drop have unveiled the first track from their upcoming album II, which will be released by Golf Channel Recordings on November 24th.

‘Sun Gun’ is a sprawling piece psychedelic funk that glides along with toe-tapping bassline, while being illuminated by a pulsating synth-part enough to make even the biggest of party-poopers get up and dance.

Members of Gala Drop move in esteemed circles having previously performed with Parliament and Funkadelic on the live stage, as well as collaborating with Theo Parrish on record.

But they’re truly at their best when left to their own devices and, based on this first glimpse, the follow-up to their self-titled debut looks set to be one of the best winter warmers on offer later this year – staving off the impending frostbite with an unbridled carnival atmosphere that can’t be suppressed.

Give ‘Sun Gun’ a listen here.
