Freedom Fry “Zombie Love’

A Halloween themed song by Freedom Fry “Zombie Love” is a cool hip indie tune.  The whistles remind this listener of songs such as “Young Folks” by Peter Bjorn and John.  The song features lots of busy percussive elements which lure the listener into this groovy dark yet cute themed production.  “Zombie Love” is a duet where both singers perform their melodies in a similar range which makes it hard to differentiate and plays into the prosody of the undead.  Definitely a fun spooky song for your indie Halloween playlist.

“The name “Freedom Fry” – a satire on French/US relations during the Iraq war – is well known to any frequent visitor of The Hype Machine. The French & American duo have racked up over 50 appearances on the music blog aggregator, including SEVEN Top 10s and THREE #1s. While independent, they’ve amassed over 50-million track streams on Spotify and received radio spins across airwaves from tastemakers at ALT 98.7, KCRW, KEXP, KROQ, WXPN, SIRIUS XM (Alt Nation & The Coffee House), BBC (Radio 2 & Radio 6), RTL2, and beyond.

Freedom Fry’s music, which heavily bleeds the warmth and sunshine of their home state of California, skirts the lines between pop, folk, and alt rock – always blended with danceable rhythms and a sing-a-long chorus. Catching the ears of music supervisors, they have licensed songs for more than 40 spots, including placements in the Netflix original series “Love,” in Showtime’s “Shameless,” in TV’s Grey’s Anatomy, and in high-profile ads from fashion labels such as Lanvin.

Following a 2015 tour with Belgian sensation Stromae and the success of their 2016 single “Shaky Ground” – a song that made Spotify’s “Best of 2016: Ultimate Indie playlist” – Freedom Fry performed in Madewell stores across the country as part of the brand’s Fall 2016 Denim Forever campaign. In 2017 they released a new single followed by a b-side every other week for five months leading up to the “Remixes” EP, a collection of their biggest singles remixed by the likes of Sofi Tukker & Penguin Prison. Freedom Fry closed out 2017 with the release of the “Strange Attraction” EP and Indie Shuffle named them “Best Indie Rock of 2017.”

Freedom Fry released their long-awaited debut album, “Classic” June 1, 2018 and perform at SXSW.”
