FRĒYO is hard at work putting together new material and has two brand new releases set to drop this summer. The first record is called "Show Love" and its one of my favorite lyrical performances from the California MC. FRĒYO finds a harmonic melody line at the top of the intro and rides the theme throughout the entire record. The more you listen to the track the more it feels like multiple hooks compiled together that make for a listening experience that is refreshing as it breaks the mold of standard song patterns. The next record "COPE" is still in pre-production and is set to be one of FRĒYO's most important songs to date. As we get closer to its completion I will expound on the details behind "COPE", but for now make sure to go to www.freyomusic.com to keep up with everything that is FRĒYO.
