New Single: The Voodoo Trombone Quartet

New Single: The Voodoo Trombone Quartet


New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Vision Music Promotions) "Hello! Who Are You?" is the sixth single from The Voodoo Trombone Quartet and the first on their own imprint. The A-side, a joyous blend of fuzz bass and Tijuana horns, attempts to worm its way into your head and heart in three breathless minutes, driven along by hand-claps and broken-down Casio beats.

"Easy to Learn" on the B-side, pits motorik rhythms with celestial horns and rudimentary electronics building up to an ecstatic, noisy crescendo.

Both tracks are taken from the forthcoming third Voodoo Trombone Quartet album "Dress Down Friday", due out this Summer. Music from previous releases has appeared in Ugly Betty, Being Human, Little Big Planet, The Paper (MTV), John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme (Radio 4), Don't Tell the Bride and many other shows and adverts.
Live, the eight-piece have graced the stages of Glastonbury, Bestival, Ronnie Scotts, Cannes Lion Festival, and Secret Garden amongst others. Dates are currently being lined up to promote the new album.

The Voodoo Trombone Quartet are a band from the UK whose unique sound skillfully blends, disco, jazz, brass, lounge and krautrock with a wry sense of humour and a contemporary dance floor sensibility.

Formed in 2004 by producer, record collector and multi instrumentalist, Paul Thorpe, the band's first tracks were made freely available on the internet by their creator as supposedly 'rediscovered' originals. The joke backfired however when the tracks became immensely popular in their own right and each one clocked up thousands of downloads. The newly formed independent label Freshly Squeezed Music duly took note and signed Paul for the bands eponymous debut album in 2005.

A live 8-piece band, half of which consisted of brass section, were subsequently formed to spread the VTQ message… Dates swiftly followed through 2006 at clubs and festivals across Europe as the band's growing reputation spread. This culminated in near disaster when the single "Medium Wave" almost blew their cult credentials by entering the fringes of the UK Download Chart. Fortunately it was a near miss and the band remain a bona fide underground act to this day…
