After building more and more worldwide buzz, San Francisco's Rupa & the April Fishes are set to release their third studio album, Build, on October 2.
Build, which was produced by Todd Sickafoose (Ani DiFranco, Andrew Bird), explores what it means to be worldly—to experience solitude and to be one with the people. It is the aural representation of the band's roots. Singer Rupa has Hindustani roots, although she eventually settled in San Francisco after living in Southern France. The April Fishes come from all over the globe, including Uzbekhistan, Nicaragua and Los Angeles.
Today, we have the album's title track, "Build," as a FILTER Premiere. The song, which is much in the vein of the rest of the album, provides a look into what it means to live among the earth's elements. As an opening track, it sure gets you interested in what's coming next.
