Here’s one we’ve been listening to for a while now. Free Spirit is the title track from a new EP from US band Fictionist. Creative, upbeat, quirky pop is their thing, all wrapped up in a really well-crafted package.
This four-piece are equally strong as songwriters as they are musicians. Their unique sound features two lead-vocalists, Stuart Maxfield and Robert Connolly, who trade leads and creative counterpunches throughout the EP. Drummer Aaron Anderson and guitarist/bassist Brandon Kitterman round out the rhythm section with driving beats that blend well alongside the guitar and vocal elements.
The music video for the single shows the band messing around on the set of a seemingly epic film, where the director chooses to answer phone calls from his famous friends (Adam Levine, Bruce Springsteen, etc.) instead of listening to band’s requests.
