They’ve set fire to some of the most prestigious stages Switzerland has to offer, such as Montreux Jazz FestivalJazz Ascona Festival & Locarno Film Festival, they’ve been chosen by legendary saxophonist, composer, arranger and long-time James Brown collaborator Pee Wee Ellis to accompany him on tour in Europe, and now Lugano’s heaviest funk outfit Re:Funk are ready to unveil their first official single.
“The Harder We Try” is a scorching tribute to 70s blaxploitation movie soundtracks, with jangly guitar, infectious horns and a heavy backbeat.  Think cinematic funk (picture a breathtaking chase down the hills of the Frisco Bay if you like) with a disco-like hook that highlights a tormented and passionate love story, and you get the gist of Swiss-based funk ensemble Re:Funk‘s first single. This is only the first step for the eight-piece powerhouse, (who for the occasion of this single appear with an expanded formation of twelve), stay tuned for more!
