FREDDY FATE x JAY BIRD, “Light Now” (free DL)
Prefacing his upcoming full release is Washington indie artist Freddy Fate with “Light Now”. It’s a gentle but compelling and hopeful song full of soulful urgency in its vocal, that should grab ears of alt.rock fans looking for something a bit left of centre. It’s given the added bonus of washes of synths and some vocal effects courtesy of producer Jay Bird, which sometimes offer an other-worldy vibe, making it also instantly appealing to electronic and dance music lovers as well. “Light Now” is an odd and likable hybrid that will continue to get under your skin with its emotional qualities, so it’s best to take advantage of downloading it for free at the link above.
