Before releasing their upcoming album, “Bright Gloom”, via Century Media Records April 27th, 2018, Spain’s ’77 are thrilled to drop a video clip for “Last Chance” that was directed and edited by Juli Bazooka for Full Metal Films.
The band comments: “’Bright Gloom’ is not only about dark-heavy riffing, we can’t escape from our roots – blues and rock and roll that is. ‘Last Chance’ has that small-sweaty-beer-soaked-venue flavour in it and it is not a bad thing, au contraire, that’s ’77’s natural habitat for God’s sake! We hope you enjoy the rock and roll music in it and the awesome work done by our friends from Full Metal Films.”
Since ’77 are true enthusiasts of rock it is no surprise that their new album, “Bright Gloom”, is the hardrock album that you would expect from the quartet surrounding the brothers Armand (lead singer/rhythm guitar) and LG (lead guitar/backing vocals) Valeta. “This time we didn’t want to overthink and just play what comes natural to us”, explains LG. An approach that created two contrasting vibes on the album: a darker and a brighter atmosphere. “As we wanted to emphasize the concept of duality we came up with the album title, ‘Bright Gloom’.” The album was recorded live onto tape in Brazil Studios in Madrid between November and December of 2017 with the well-known Spanish producer Raül Refree and Javier Ortiz as engineer assistant.
‘77 are no slouches to perfection. Ensuring that the album cover also mirrored the music, the group hired designer Pol Abran Cantador and Branca Studios, a graphic design firm bridging music, film, art, and culture using 1970’s aesthetics.
“Bright Gloom” is the first album with bassist Dani Martin. “We’ve known Dani for a long time now,” says LG. “He’s actually a big fan of the band. He even has ‘77 inked on his arm. He came to record a video of our show in Barcelona when we presented our ‘Maximum Rock’n’Roll’ album. He was also working in the same profession, so we met often. He’s a very easygoing guy, who fits pretty well in the ‘77 family.” That he’s “an authentic music freak, gear fan, and ‘70s lover” makes his homecoming on “Bright Gloom” all the more perfect.
