FREAK is a trio from Chelmsford, Essex. Thats pretty much the only thing I can tell you about them as I cannot find any other information about them, how mysterious. Before Monday I had never even heard of them, but they are definitely on their way to my top 10.
FREAK played a short but sweet set of 20 minutes before Sundara Karma at their SOLD OUT gig at Brudenell Social Club, Leeds. Despite them only being a support act, the crowd went mental, singing their songs and opening pits and clapping along without been instructed. At one point two girls even got on stage to join the band before getting kicked off by security. They definitely got a warm welcome. Front man,
Connar Ridd, is certainly not a stranger when it comes to going and joining the crowd during a song.
My favourite song by them defintely has to be ‘What Happened?’ the lyrics are just so catchy, the songs been in my head since Monday!
After Sundara Karma had finished there set, they hung out around the merchandise stand, patiently talking and taking photos with new fans that they had gained that night. Got to say they have some pretty cool merchandise, but sadly theres no where to get the online (CRY)
I can honestly admit that FREAK have now got a large fan base brewing in Leeds and we definitely want to see them back here soon for a headline show!
If you can, definitely go see them, its so worth it:
