YOUNG GUN SILVER FOX · CANYONS








YOUNG GUN SILVER FOX

Canyons

21 Feb. 2020


Label: Légère Recordings









Con sus dos primeros álbumes "West End Coast" (2015) y "AM Waves" (2018), Andy Platts y Shawn Lee, más conocidos como Young Gun Silver Fox, formularon una versión moderna de los clásicos sonidos West Coast y soft rock. El tercer álbum "Canyons" desarrolla la fórmula con diez composiciones bien pensadas, armonías maravillosas, metales incisivos e imágenes de sonido inimitables.

El enfoque de Young Gun Silver Fox se ha hecho con el respeto mundial. Tocaron en reconocidos festivales de jazz europeos (North Sea Jazz, Überjazz o Pori Jazz), hicieron sold sout varias veces el Amsterdam Paradiso y fueron la única banda actual que apareció en el documental de televisión de Soft Rock "I Can Go For That" en la BBC .

Al igual que los dos álbumes predecesores, "Canyons" fue una vez más compuesta, grabada y producida por Platts & Lee en su estudio de Londres. Una característica sorprendente esta vez son los arreglos de Nichol Thomson (Incognito, Robbie Williams, Annie Lennox, Gregory Porter). Las diez nuevas canciones son un viaje increíble a través de todas las facetas de la era dorada del West Coast entre 1974 y 1984. "Who Needs Words", "Long Distance Love Affair" o "Things We Left Unsaid" también se pueden encontrar en álbumes de héroes del género como Pages, Stylus y Player. "Dream Woman" tiene un toque de Chicago, "Danny Jamaica" es quizás el loco tema musical de una serie de televisión perdida de la década de 1970. Un verdadero álbum de AOR incluye la gran balada ("All This Love") y los mejores éxitos pop ("Kids", "Private Paradise").

"Canyons" se refiere a la importancia de los valles alrededor de Los Ángeles para el sonido West Coast. Algunos de los álbumes más importantes de la década de 1970 se crearon en Topanga y Laurel Canyon, eran simplemente lugares místicos y mágicos. Incluso si Platts y Lee no estuvieran allí, sus "cañones" transportarían esta magia al presente.

···························

With their first two albums "West End Coast" (2015) and "AM Waves" (2018), Andy Platts and Shawn Lee, better known as Young Gun Silver Fox, formulated a modern version of the classic West Coast and soft rock sounds. The third album "Canyons" consequently develops the formula with ten well thought-out compositions, wonderful harmonies, incisive brass and inimitable sound images.

Young Gun Silver Fox's approach has worldwide respect. They played well-known European jazz festivals (North Sea Jazz, Überjazz or Pori Jazz), sold out several times the Amsterdam Paradiso and were the only current band to feature in the soft rock TV documentary "I Can Go For That" on the BBC.
Like the two predecessors, "Canyons" was once again composed, recorded and produced by Platts & Lee in their London studio. A striking feature this time is the brass arranged by Nichol Thomson (Incognito, Robbie Williams, Annie Lennox, Gregory Porter). The ten new songs are an incredible journey through all facets of the golden era of soft rock between 1974 and 1984. "Who Needs Words", "Long Distance Love Affair" or "Things We Left Unsaid" could also be found on albums by genre heroes like Pages, Stylus and Player. "Dream Woman" has a Chicago touch, "Danny Jamaica" is perhaps the crazy theme music of a lost TV series from the 1970s. A real AOR album includes the great ballad ("All This Love") and top pop hits ("Kids", "Private Paradise").

"Canyons" refers to the importance of the valleys around Los Angeles to the West Coast sound: Some of the most important albums of the 1970s were created in Topanga and Laurel Canyon, they were simply mystical, magical places. Even if Platts & Lee were not there, their "canyons" transport this magic into the present.
