Freedom Fry previously released their single "Cold Blooded Heart" which Culture Collidepraised for its ability to evoke a "late '60s aesthetic with effortless precision." The band's retro-influenced music video for lead single "Classic
" inspired a wide array of internet buzz, topping the HypeMachine charts at #1, and inspiring the band to produce a mini-podcast segment, taking a behind-the-scenes look at the song's recording process.

They have performed in Europe
and throughout the U.S. with the likes of Stromae, Phantogram, and X Ambassadors
