Hard on the heels of their last single “Human”, ever prolific LA-based duo Freedom Fry released their first French language album earlier this month. While they had recorded a few odd tracks in French before, L’Invitation is the band’s first album to be recorded from start to finish in singer Marie Seyrat’s mother tongue. Combining Seyrat’s vocals with musical (and sentimental) partner Bruce Driscoll’s arrangements, this new record is probably Freedom Fry’s dreamiest and most nostalgic effort yet.
In the run-up to the album, back in February, Seyrat and Driscoll shared standout disco-hewed number “Corde Sensible”, probably their danciest tune to date. Fueled by funky piano chords, filtered vocals and an irresistible beat, it is a shimmering and delightful soundtrack to a never-ending nigh out.
