Our favourite new band is Freedom Or Death from Canada. Taking their name from the war cry of the people of Greece during the 1820 Greek War of Independence, the Toronto-based electro/soul duo released their brilliant self-titled EP (buy it here). Their eclectic sound is based in everything, acoustic folk, electronica, traditional rock, hip-hop rhythms yet always rooted in lyrics with substance. In their words: “We decided we wanted to make music that we would like to listen to, regardless if it gets played on the radio or not.” Today, we share two Freedom Or Death tracks with you and a video. So, here’s the amazing song ‘This Crowded Room’ and their cover of Pink’s ‘Sober’. Yes, freedom is on a road trip.
