Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed The Freight in the past but they are out with a new single and I want to share my thoughts about it.
Another beautiful song by this talented band.
As soon as I hit the play button I immediately thought about U2.
A song that grows softly and that constantly adds sound elements in order to emphasize even more this artistic liberation.
The thing that I liked the most about this tune is that it takes you higher and higher and leaves you there on the edge between past and future.
This song does not give any answer but simply gives a unique and eternal moment and you have to fully enjoy it without asking yourself too many questions.
I closed my eyes and let myself be guided by their vision and let myself be carried away by the flow of the “sonic river” created by The Freight.
A band that reconfirms itself for talent and maturity.
Fly On is The Freight’s Single Out Now!
The Freight are keeping up their steady momentum in 2021 with their 3rd single release of the year, “Fly On”. The Freight are riding the up swing after their last single “Found” was their most successful release yet. This latest single is an ambitious, thematic anti-ballad that clearly shows The Freight are much more than just rock n’ roller’s. Their versatility and growth are on full display with this song.
“Fly On’ is a spacious, ambient journey of string arrangements, percussion elements and big harmonies. All the players have shining moments in the song and you can hear the band spreading their wings throughout. The song is the bands most ambitious production yet and engineer/producer Jeff Rosen of Cherrywood Records completely delivered. This song has vibes of vintage U2 deep cuts and has an almost cinematic feel to it. The song builds as it goes and you can feel the instruments moving throughout, ultimately reaching the climactic ending with big harmonies, strings and emotion coming to a peak.
“Fly On” sends the message, enough is enough…. You’ve been here for her too many times before and can’t keep playing second fiddle with her. Not when you feel the way you do about her…Time for her to “Fly On”.
