Freudz Couch have released their newest single ‘Freedom’ off their upcoming LP, ‘Psycho A,’ set to be released this November.
Following a welcome return to the music scene in 2016 after a 13-year hiatus, the Canadian indie/hard rock band’s presence grew exponentially on social media, leading to a record deal with the Germany-based 7hard Records.
The first fruit of that labor is ‘Freedom,’ an electric, nostalgic homecoming; each band member’s skill—Nik Paparo on the drums, Vince Therrien on bass guitar, Don Fournier on guitar, and Patrick Veinot vocals—weaves a seamless journey rife with moody instrumentals and rock-influenced vocals.
Fans of rock will be pleasantly surprised at the ease with which indie-inspired segments flow with the track. Listeners familiar with the likes of indie greats like The Lumineers will find familiarity in Freudz Couch’s sound.
If ‘Freedom’ is any indication of what is to come on ‘Psycho A,’ fans of both the indie and hard rock genres are in for a treat. Freudz Couch isn’t afraid to blur the lines of genre—but looking to their hot-and-cold, on-and-off history that could have predicted anything but this strong of a return, it’s safe to say the band isn’t much into tradition rather than forging their own musical path. This is freedom at a whole new level.
