Freddy's are about to serve up one massive summer tour
Their Brand new track 'Trickle Down', released 20 July, is an electronic-driven reaction to the politics of the day – the false economic principle of wealth trickling down from the 1% to the 99%. As they sing of running out of patience while waiting for the rain to fall, a confident, steady beat encourages us to keep going forward as a sign of hope and promise. Recorded at the band’s Bays studio in their Wellington hometown, the track arose from a series of jams and is a taste of the new album they’re concocting as a follow-up to their earlier releases; Bays, Blackbird, Dr Boondigga & The Big BW and record breaking Based on a True Story.
