Mydy Rabycad cast away all the rules on their new album M.Y.D.Y. A new ride begins!
“It’s the beginning of a new ride,” says red-haired singer, Žofie Dařbujanová. She enters a new era with her talented Prague-based band, Mydy Rabycad. Their third record, M.Y.D.Y. flashes like a fancy colourful diamond at first glance and sounds like euphoria from the dance floor at 2am on the first listen. After their fan hysteria in South Korea, dream tour in the USA, and shows at festivals like Glastonbury, Mydy Rabycad have cast away all the rules and jump over genre barriers. The third record, M.Y.D.Y. awakens the unbridled inner demon who dictates the tone of the whole gang - forget all prejudices, don’t be afraid to be different, be yourself. What happens in the club, stays in the club.
Eleven tracks were enough for Mydy Rabycad to persuade all the remaining doubters that the era of retro electro-swing parties is gone. However, it doesn’t mean the band has lost its lust to dance. On the contrary. The pilot single, Just Dance, sounds like a guide to both physical and mental cleansing with only one rule: to forget all the rules. The other songs on the album balance dance melodies between hard synths and swing roots, that have a more daring sound this time.
In none of the previous two albums have Žofie Dařbujánová, the saxophonist Mikuláš Pejcha, the keyboardist Nero Scartch and bass player Jan Drábek, managed easily to transfer their energetic concert sound to the studio recording. “I want our records to have the same effect on the listeners as our live shows. We did our best on M.Y.D.Y.,” adds Žofie, who gets into a different dimension during the concerts, giving out all her feelings and emotions. In songs such as Rise Up or I Don’t Care, her emotions go hand in hand with the ornate electronic production based on solid synthesizers.
The vigor of the album corresponds with the fresh space of the Red Bull Studios in Berlin, where the Prague band closed itself off for a few days and gained a whole new look at the production of contemporary music. The album was produced by Tomáš Konůpka and featured special guests such as a brass section led by Miroslav Hloucal, a string quartet with Hana Kašpárek Vyšínská, double bass player, Josef Fečo and the band manager, Papa Kush with his sub bass vocals. Mydy Rabycad confirm with their third album their status as one of the most colourful young formations who can still surprise and wake up even the laziest slacker in the sun to dance.
