New Wave Rock Band The Fontaines Show Off Their Inner “Freak”

A tale of a bad experience in bed highlights the narrative of the new single “Freak” by Los Angeles rock band The Fontaines. The song is filled with sultry vocals, groovy rhythms and a down-tempo beat all layered nicely with top notch production values. Check out the song here:

The Fontaines started with Charlotte Fontaine (vocals) and Hank Fontaine (guitar) writing songs together in 2014, until they were joined by Chrystian Kaplan (drums) and Daniel Zuker (bass) and became a full four piece. Charlotte is reclaiming sexist connotations and letting everyone know that it’s okay to be labeled a freak. After tiring out from uncomfortable encounters who shamed her, Charlotte decided to take the mantle of “freak” and run with it, making it acceptable for others too to indulge in their inner freak.

The band has been on a roll lately. In 2017, The Fontaines dropped the debut single “Evaporate,” which received airplay on commercial and satellite radio, and garnered thousands of online streams. This success caught on in Los Angeles, where The Fontaines headlined a sold-out performance at The Troubadour in support of their dual EP releases, “Playgirls” and “Playboys.”
