Dead Freights are sharing their new single and video, “Who Said Scared,” and you can take a look right here at New Noise.
The track is a slow-burning, atmospheric ballad that turns to riot, detailing the tale of two lovers unraveling and disintegrating under the weight of their own fears and inadequacies. “Who Said Scared” moves from its central vocal hook, centering a sweet three-part Americana vocal harmony, into a raging fury of industrial and punk.
The band—comprised of Charlie James (vox/guitar), Robert Franklin (lead guitar ), Dan Kelly (bass), Louis Duarte (drums)—say, “It’s a reflection of being with someone I loved, after the lust phase, where the relationship needed a new oxygen to survive and latched onto each others fear of being alone. It’s about how you tear each other apart before you’ll leave, the final act where the memories of romance are still fresh but the horrible end is in sight.”
The new release follows Dead Freights’ highly praised U.K. support tour with The Libertines and a number of successive, sold-out London shows.
The band still have a handful of shows on their agenda this summer. Check those dates out below:
7/5 — Portsmouth, Headline: BBC South’s Independent Venue week, Wedgewood rooms
7/21 — Oxfordshire, Truck Festival
7/29 — London, Headline: The Macbeth
