How You'll Grow with Freedom Baby - An Interview

Pouco mais de seis meses de vida, o duo canadense Eric e Brianna, resolveram juntar-se musicalmente, além do fato de serem namorados, em uma viagem contemplativa e melancólica sob a alcunha de Freedom Baby.

E o debute deles nasceu há pouco menos de vinte dias. "How You´ll Grow", o EP, navega por entre um certo indie rock épico com inserções de grandiosidade em suas canções. Tudo de certa forma melancólico, mas com uma esperança sinalizada que paira pelas quatro canções.

O Freedom Baby é daquelas bandas que deveriam estar tocando em rádios mundo afora, mesmo porque o indie, como é categorizado hoje, na visão do TBTCI deveria ser este aqui.

***** Interview with Freedom Baby *****

Q. When did Freedom Baby begin? Tell us about the history...
We released our first song in August 2017, which was a sleepy bedroom electro pop song called Video Daydream. We were just kinda hanging around, messing around on the piano and decided to try and write a song together. And then someone asked us if we wanted to play a show, so we had to write some more songs.

Q: Who are your influences?
Space Jam, Mighty Ducks and The Beach Boys

Q. Make a list of 5 albuns of all time…
David Bowie - Hunky Dory
Deaf School - 2nd Honeymoon
The Beatles - Sgt. Peppers
Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
Freedom Baby - How You'll Grow

Q. How do you feel playing live?
Sometimes weird. Sometimes nice. Depends on the night. Our band is great though. So usually its good.

Q. How do you describe Freedom Baby sounds?
Orchestral indie rock, sometimes post-punky ..sometimes chamber pop. We've been writing a little disco-y lately. But that's a story for another record.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
We record in our apartment. We invite musicians over to play horns and stuff. Everything is real. We use real drums, and real guitar amps and real horns and strings. But it usually starts on a piano on an iPhone voice memo and we build it from there.

Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Phoebe Bridgers new album is amazing. We both we really love it. Listening to Car Seat Headrests new album a lot as well.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
We're just taking it one day at a time right now. We're excited to see how people respond to the EP and play that live as much as we can. We're constantly writing too, so who knows, maybe there's more new music on the horizon.

Q: Any parting words?
Thanks so much for interviewing us!
