The Freefall are a four-piece indie band from the midlands consisting of Ant Macandrew (Lead Vocals/Guitar/Keys/Banjo), Scott Ballard (Guitar/Keys/Vocals), Andy Cox (Bass/Vocals) & Ben Selfridge (Drums/Vocals).
The group released their debut album, ‘What’s Love?’ in late 2012 and haven’t looked back since. They have created and developed a strong web fan base, extensively performed around the U.K, shot numerous music videos and completed two short tours in Europe. The band have performed on the same bills as acts such as The Cribs, Kids in Glass Houses and in 2012 performed an after-show party for The Wombats, following their Brixton show.
This bands increasing popularity emulates from their unique mixture of melodic, inspirational writing style, twinned with their powerful live performances. The Freefall specialise in composing songs which convey emotion on both a direct and a metaphorical level, encapsulated by a great rhythm section, calculated guitar lines and beautiful vocal harmonies. The songs melodies are paramount for the delivery of the bands subject matter and their ultimate agenda is to entice their audience to vocalise their excitement by singing along. Characteristics of the bands material include: The Catchy Chorus, The Blended Harmony, The Skip into the Dark, The Group Chant and The Manipulation of Harmony.
The band are currently recording their second album which will contain their eagerly awaited single, ‘Horse’. The new, as yet untitled album pushes the band further than ever before utilising a wider array of styles and using more instruments but amalgamating all of this together in fantastic songs with the warmth and power commonly associated with The Freefall.
The Freefall’s immersing songs and encapsulating live show is propelling them to an unforgettable standard. The next 12 months for this band will be exponential!
