Full Trunk, a new Israeli blues-rock super group, has presented itself as one of the most talented bands in the Israeli rock scene.
Their second album, “Time for Us to Move“, is a truly kickass performance, an explosion of music talent that gives Full Trunk a stamp of approval declaring them ready for the international market.
The first single, also titled “Time for Us to Move”, is a funk blues rock song. But if you dig into the lyrics, you’ll eventually find yourself sucked unknowingly into the Israeli-Palestine conflict. It’s actually a sad story of all those people who live close to the border with the Gaza strip and have been suffering for more than 15 years from continued attacks on their homes.
This album – available on Bandcamp – will definitely captivate ears and hearts because of the superb combination of rhythms that you don’t find in most common blues rock records. “Time for us to move” perfectly mixes the genre’s sound with local Israeli/Mediterranean music influences.
In 2014, the Israel Blues Society selected Full Trunk debut album as the Best Blues Album for 2014, and chose it to represent Israel in the most prestigious blues event, the International Blues Challenge held in Memphis (Tennessee), USA, the blues capital of the world. This nomination becomes more significant as many top Israeli blues artists also released great albums that year.
