Here is the catchy new single from Fred Abbott and The Wild Unknown.  The upbeat ‘What Kind of Trouble’ is driven by excellent rhythm and drums, over which Abbott’s jangling guitar is engagingly melodic – bright sounds in time for summer sunshine.  Alongside Abbott on electric guitar, ‘What Kind Of Trouble’ features a smooth, tuneful performance from Steve Llewellyn on lead vocals.  Halfway through, Abbott’s easy, fluid solo displays his fine talents on the guitar.  Filmed at London’s Karma Studios, the accompanying video feels like we’re in a musical kaleidoscope, a psychedelic effect achieved in a single take using 360º cameras.

The former guitarist and keyboardist from Noah And The Whale, Abbott has kept busy since the band split, releasing a solo record, ‘Serious Poke’, back in 2015. Following that, he has worked as a producer, writer and session player with a variety of talented artists, such as Tom Chaplin (Keane) and Jamie Lawson.  ‘What Kind of Trouble’ is taken from Fred Abbot and The Wild Unknown’s forthcoming album “Shining Under the Soot”, due out on 7th July 2023 on Lojinx Records.  Enjoy.
