Freddie Bourne releases the aura of universal appeal of his brand-new 4-track EP ‘The Troubled Boy at the Bonfire Disco’.
Colorful because of several inspiring moments, Freddie Bourne’s new EP moves between deep, expressive and engaging parentheses, with which the native New Jersey artist moves amiably between influences of indietronica, with touches of soft rock and alternative pop.
By setting up layered constructions with exciting developments and immersive atmospheres, with ‘The Troubled Boy at the Bonfire Disco’ Bourne gives us an enthralling and engaging release, thanks to fresh danceable rhythms, a touching songwriting, and the contribution of Stephen Horning and Dirty Dogg Productions.
Here Bourne proves to be an artist of undeniable talent, showing off 4 tracks of broad perspectives, organically joined together, but that at the same time present a full-bodied and unique music delivery, so much so that each song could be a single capable of being a matching for many of the disposable albums that flood today’s indie music scene.
‘I Hope You Don’t Forgive Me’ is a prime example of this expressive width, both in style and musical argumentation. From the first notes the track sinks into an intimate atmosphere, interspersed with an uplifting rhythmic riff that with each resumption nourishes an uplifting sense of growth, colored by a melancholic aftertaste.
One might think that with ‘I Hope You Don’t Forgive Me’ Bourne has already said it all, but as soon as the notes of ‘Jeni’ start, a satisfying shiver runs down one’s back and everything becomes even more intriguing. The masterfully orchestrated marriage of melody and arrangements leads us to an alcove finely enriched by a more subdued aura, adorned with fine touches of light.
‘Pale Blue Sky’ opens with a vibrant pinnacle that returns only in the open and suspensive outro, with an aesthetically veiled exquisite argument at the center, embellished with reverberated vocals and atmospheric spoken words. Surprise after surprise, Bourne cleverly has fun taking us by surprise by working on structural juxtapositions.
‘Spacedust’, the final act of this distinctive collection of gems, leaves us spellbound once again by that heady feeling that has accompanied us throughout the EP. Here the gentle touch and the round emotion expand, and at the same time summarize, the sense of depth and width of the entire release, giving us a sum of everything, leaving us wanting for more.
With ‘The Troubled Boy at the Bonfire Disco’ Bourne brings us a release that appears magically infused in an aura of universal charm, that with boldness and distinctive style leads us to get lost and find ourselves at every listening.
