If you’re feeling lost or in pieces, just think that it will get better from here, and that songs like “When We Go” by Freedom Baby exist to lift your spirits up.
Heavily reminding us of the alterna-folk stylings of Broken Social Scene, Freedom Baby is a 9-man music collective from Toronto, and we are so drawn into their flowery sound like bees. “When We Go” starts slow, and it slowly catches up to a brazen, exciting tempo that’s all sorts of enlightening and breezy.
“The song is an ode to death and dying; both an acceptance of the loss of loved ones and a hopeful questioning of the ideas of rebirth and existence beyond a physical death. We wanted the instrumental elements to relay this depth of emotion. The cycle of death and rebirth is often seen as a heavy and philosophical topic, but we felt that it captured our direction in terms of our musical style as well as our personal thoughts and inspiration,” said the leaders of the band in a release sent to The Violet Wave.
“When We Go” is included in the band’s upcoming EP.
