Earlier this year, WHRO‘s Paul Shugrue featured The Fratellis in an album of the week feature. On Half Drunk Under A Full Moon, “more elaborate sonic touches to go along with their sometimes lunatic lyrics. Phil Spector’s wall of sound is a definite influence on the new album with their long-time producer Tony Hoffler layering the joyous vocals over the swirl of a multitude of instruments…”
Shugrue’s post continues, “The expansion of the instrumentation on Half Drunk Under a Full Moon is as ambitious as the evolution of their lyrics from fun and lighthearted to more profound and memorable. The Fratellis new found theatricality has them going to musical places they’ve never been before.” Check out the feature right here.
