Freddie Dickson shares the video for new single ‘Speculate’ today –
WATCH: ‘SPECULATE’ BELOW
In Freddie’s words: “The video for Speculate portrays two juxtaposing characters at different points in their lives. The old lady’s nostalgia and the younger women’s painful fragility outline two majorly contrasting forms of solitude.”
The video follows the announcement of the Speculate EP, which is released 13th April on Columbia Records. It features two new songs: ‘Speculate’ and ‘Hideout,’ as well as a new version of ‘Shut Us Down.’
Freddie Dickson, has also announced an intimate headline show, at London’s The Waiting Room on 1st April, tickets are on sale at www.goldenvoice.com.
The show comes ahead of the Communion New Faces Tour (dates below). Tickets are available from www.communionmusic.com.
He’s a gripping live performer (alongside his band, The Guard). In the past few months alone, Freddie has sold out Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, Sebright Arms, and headlined shows for The Line of Best Fit’s Five Day Forecast, VICE’s club night, and Club NME at KOKO. He was an undoubted highlight at the influential Eurosonic showcase, and is already finding his name on the first festival line-ups of the Summer across the UK and Europe and on German TV’s ‘Rockplast Show.’
Based in East London, the cinematic scale of Freddie’s first songs posted to Sound Cloud received immediate comparisons to Lana Del Rey. However tokenistic a reference point, there is something in the atmosphere that surrounds Freddie’s music that connect with Del Rey, something tense and beautiful, expressive but oblique.
Speculate is another telling introduction to Freddie’s early promise and one with a gritty underbelly to that foreboding sound of his previous releases. With a debut album almost complete, this EP harnesses a mesmerizing young performer, and a distinctive new British voice.
