On the heels of their long-awaited debut album Classic, Los Angeles-based alt-folk duo Freedom Fry share their retro-inspired new video for album single “Die Tryin.” Directed by the band themselves, the video brings a new life to the harmonic vocals of Parisian-born Marie Seyrat and Michigan-born Bruce Driscoll. The band comments:
“Most of the time it’s just the two of us in the studio, recording the music and playing all the different parts. Sometimes we fantasize about being able to multiply ourselves, and just recording the songs live that way. That’s kind of where the idea for this video comes from. It’s like we started a band with our clones.”
Classic is a twelve-track collection that sees the couple emerge with their most ambitious work to date.
Freedom Fry heavily bleeds the warmth and sunshine of their home state of California, skirting the lines between pop, folk, and alt rock. Their music can be heard in over 50 films, shows, and commercials including Judd Apatow’s Love, Showtime’s Shameless, Grey’s Anatomy, and in high-profile ads for fashion labels such as Lanvin and Madewell. They have performed in Europe and throughout the U.S. with the likes of Stromae, Phantogram, and X Ambassadors as they continue to independently amass over 60 million streams to date.
Be sure to check out the new album and catch the band’s kinetic live energy in San Francisco on July 6th. More info available here!
