Fort Knox Five‘s brand new single ‘McGuires Audio Shop’ draws its inspiration from a sign the guys picked up down a backstreet in Washington, DC back in the 1990s bearing the same name. McGuires Audio Shop closed its doors many, many years ago now but is remembered as a rich part of the cities music heritage, hence the reason why they just had to have it. They hung it in their studio and it still hangs there to this very day to always keep them connected to a city they love and call home.
The funky new track from Fort Knox Five has a throwback feel to it and its instrumental approach is very much in line with their career-defining tune ‘The Brazilian Hipster’ that was released some 15 years ago. Modern-day production does give it a slick feel, but crisp drum breaks, a low-slung groove, swinging horns by Stewart Cole (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros) and fresh guitar licks and melodies by Rob Myers (Thievery Corporation/See-I/Thunderball) all combine with that old school Funk flavour that everyone knows and loves Fort Knox Five for. Just like the sign for the guys, you’re just gonna have to have it!
