Tropical Gypsy due for release

Molotov Jukebox have announced the release of their highly anticipated second album Tropical Gypsy will take place on 15 April 2016, as they launch their latest UK tour.

The album is set to display a whirlwind of Latino influenced horns, accordion and violin; all tightly bound together over guitar, bass and drums by the infectious vocals of musician and actress, Natalia Tena.

Incorporating newly found sounds collected first hand on a South American tour last year, the band have added flavours of samba, fohó and cumbia to their existing Balkan influences

Famed for their ferocious performances around the globe in both English and Spanish, none of the band’s undeniable live energy has been allowed to escape during recording.

Speaking about Tropical Gypsy, Natalia Tena, commented “We’ve made this album with a lot of passion and pulse, whilst using every artistic bone in our bodies to develop and focus our style and sound from the past album. We are incredibly grateful to be able to do the thing we love for our fans that understand what our music is about and where we are going with it. Get your dancing shoes ready!”
