Your License to Be Weird. - Freedom Fry: David Bowie

The name Freedom Fry is well known to any frequent visitor of The Hype Machine. This French & American duo have racked up over 50 appearances on the music blog aggregator, amassing over 50 million streams on Spotify alone - no small feat for an indie band with limited resources.

Freedom Fry’s music incorporates the warmth and sunshine of their home state of California, while intentionally blurring the lines between pop, folk, and alt-rock. Their commitment to danceable rhythms and sing-along choruses has secured a number of high-profile placements for their brand of indie-pop: the Netflix original series Love, Showtime’s Shameless, and ABC's Grey’s Anatomy, to name a few. David Bowie is an upbeat, single-minded commitment to being weird for its own sake, and a fitting tribute to the ultimate icon of personal style.

Walking with my boots like a spaceman
Dancing all alone in the basement

The name Freedom Fry is a satire on French/US relations during the Iraq war. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
