Absolutely Free’s new track, “Vision’s,” begins with a few blips of 50s country-western samples, then adds a bit of sped-up 60s girl-group percussion before coming back to the 21st century with a house beat.
That 30-second lead-in is rather lengthy for an intro, but the song recovers and eventually mixes in some synth and space-rock.
“Vision’s” follows the release of “Beneath the Air,” which works in some of the same principals. The songs are off their debut self-titled album, out Oct. 14 on Lefse Records.
Absolutely Free was created from the defunct art-punk band DD/MM/YYYY. Word is the trio’s new release also incorporates genres based on analong electronics and African polyrhythms as well. That’s a lot of influence to work with, but so far they seem to be balancing it well.
If that’s not enough, the band is also working on a feature-length film score, some remixes and their “singles” series.
The three will be on tour through December with Alvvays, Wooden Sky and Ought.
