We live for unique new sounds here at TSIS. With so much music in the world, it can be difficult to carve out a space and sound of your own, but London-based artist, Fred again… has secured some truly massive support with his one-of-a-kind “Actual Life” style. He continues to evolve that style with the release of Fred’s new album, Actual Life 2 (February 2- October 15 2021).
Fred’s trademark actual life sound utilizes a myriad of vocal samples and dance music themes to paint a deeply personal picture dealing with the many complexities of grief on this latest release. Recorded FaceTimes, obscure social media nuggets, fuzzy conversations from blurry nights out, and more explore how confiding in close friends and family can help one heal, while also respecting that grief can be indelibly etched into the subconscious. Upbeat tempos mix with a wide spectrum of synth production creating a project that spans the refreshingly euphoric to the breathtakingly mournful.
A highly rewarding listening experience awaits all those who attentively listen to this thoughtful and sonically pleasing new offering. Through it, we realize grief is not something to be demonized but to be embraced as part of a complete human experience. Stream Fred again’s… new album, Actual Life 2 (February 2- October 15 2021), below. Enjoy!
