With four studio albums already under their collective belt, New Zealand outfit Katchafire have been a staple in the global reggae scene for two decades now.
The band have earned themselves a huge global fanbase with their deeply infectious blend of funk, roots, R&B, dance and reggae… and now, the group have shared their new album Legacy.
On their incredibly infectious new album Legacy, New Zealand reggae outfit Katchafire present a collection of songs that stay true to their mission statement, while also feeling completely fresh.
On the new album, Katchafire stay true to their message of love, togetherness and family, while presenting something that feels completely new and fresh.
Even with Legacy being their fifth full-length release, Katchafire’s music never fails to feel completely energetic and vibrant.
Album opener Fyah In The Trenches will ease you into the album, introducing you to the bright horns that tie the release together. As soulful vocals weave into the rich, layered instrumentation, you’ll be completely entranced by the band’s irresistible energy.
100 is the album’s standout; a gauzy and sultry R&B track that’ll seep into your bones and make your body groove. Katchafire’s stunning vocal harmonies shine here – as layers of flawless vocal performances are woven into one another, creating a truly hypnotic listening experience.
By the time the album’s closer Way Beyond reaches it’s inclusion, you’ll have been completely captivated by the addictive reggae stylings of Katchafire.
