Paul Shakked releases first single “Play On” from new album ‘Throwback’
Roy Shakked‘s original musical vision is refreshingly left-field on new single “Play On”, the lead single from upcoming full-length album “Throwback”, due for release August 2 via Groove Gravy Records. Joined by an ensemble of world class musicians, Roy has created an experimental Indie Alt Pop album that fans of Steely Dan, Beck, Spoon or David Bowie should enjoy.
“This release was created in my personal analog studio, sinking into some fuzzy 80’s and 70’s influenced grooves and harmonies, collaborating with a bunch of amazing musicians around the world in the process.” – Roy Shakked
