The vocal chorus with Garett in front and Freekbass in the back is awesome. Also, that bass…
Freekbass will continue releasing one track a month for the next four months, culminating in an EP to be released in November. Freekbass & The Bump Assembly will follow up the release of “Runaway” with a music video to be released later this month.
