Single Premiere: The Great Salmon Famine – The Funky Circus

by Kevin Johnston

This month’s cover story and 2018 Bandwagon Battle Of The Bands winner The Great Salmon Famine premiere their lead single The Funky Circus via today.

A downtempo bass guitar pulse thumps along with a Sgt. Pepper organ twirling about in the background setting the perfect scene for The Great Salmon Famine’s mantra: play.

Youthful ringmaster vocals expound, narrating the literal circus imagery the instrumentation’s already hinted at from the top. The vocals, a relatively new addition for the 5-Piece Fort Collins funk & jam band, remind us just how fully invested in the self-defining goofiness the Great Salmon Famine are.

A rapid-speed breakdown midway through comes complete with maniacal laughter and kazoo, rounding out the climax of this, the first single from their yet-to-be-announced album.
