Straight out of Kingston, Jamaica, Raging Fyah flaunt the type of traditional reggae that will throw you back to the reggae explosion of the 70s but with a progressive, forward-thinking attitude that brings more to the table than most neo-traditional reggae bands.
Having recently signed to VP Records sub-label Dub Rockers, “Everlasting” marks the bands’ third full-length and third overall album. Throughout the album you’ll find that traditional reggae sound that throws you some mellow grooves, soothing vocals and strong songwriting. You can close your eyes and see Raging Fyah sharing a stage with the likes of Peter Tosh or the Wailers in their heyday. If you take those sounds and compliment them with the more pop-oriented sounds of 80s reggae as well as some more modern light dub and dancehall influences, that’s a vague representation of Raging Fyah’s sound.
If you’re looking for something to lively up your day, “Everlasting” is an album to reach for first. It’s rare to find a band that can honor traditional reggae while moving forward with modern influences. There is something here for reggae enthusiasts of all sorts.
Bottom Line: Steeped in early reggae influences but with a modern flair, “Everlasting” is an album that will find its way onto many a record player. Put on your headphones and get ready for an amazing journey.
