’77 “Stay Away From Water” In Latest Music Video
September 1, 2014
Spanish rockers ’77 have released a video for the song “Stay Away From Water”, from their 2013 album ‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’.
Popular for their active touring schedule, electrifying shows, and being rooted in the ’70s, ’77 walked out from the studio with a third album entitled ‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’. The disc was recorded at Gutterview Recorders in Stockholm, Sweden, and was produced by Fred Estby and Nicke Andersson.
“We tried to harden the style and sound we achieved with High Decibels with even more powerful riffs and catchy choruses,” said the band. “This is an honest album, ’77 doing what we do best, playing rock and roll songs. We kept expanding the sound of the band though, “Jazz It Up” or “Don’t You Scream” are good examples, as they are really different songs and something we’ve never approached before. Another example of this will to bring the band’s sound to new shores is “You Bore Me”, a song featuring LG on vocals for the first time on record.”
“We obviously wrote music in typical ’77 fashion such as “Down And Dirty” or “Stay Away From Water”, tunes that will make you bang your head and raise your fist in the air while singing the choruses. Once more we recorded live in the studio, supervised by Fred Estby this time behind the mics and mixing desk, and we are really happy with the sound we got — no tricks, no FX! Just Maximum Rock N’ Roll played as loud as possible.”
‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’ was the follow-up to ’21st Century Rock’ and ‘High Decibels’, the latter having reached the Sleaze Roxx Top 10 of 2011 and was praised in a review. “You may be asking yourself if there is anything original about ’77 — and the honest answer would be, no, nothing at all. But personally I’m not hung up on originality — if the music moves you, makes your head bob and your foot stomp, and makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end it has accomplished what it set out to do… and several times on High Decibels ’77 check all those boxes. Besides, copying someone is one thing, but doing it as convincingly as this is something completely different. Who cares if this album is a rehash of a sound that was fresh was back in the late ’70s, back when guitars ruled and a nasty attitude was abundant — it is the sound of energy and unpretentious hard rock.”
