“Five Minutes With” Toronto Indie-Pop artist Freddie Future

There is a new voice rising from Toronto. Emerging from the scene that gave rise to DVSN, Majid Jordan and The Darcys, Freddie Future brings forward a fresh collision of indie pop and R n’ B that pulses with the funky heartbeat of city living. On his debut self-titled EP (due mid- 2019), Freddie breathes life into classic pop tropes of romance and heartbreak while driving lyricism and musicality in a direction few dare to take. His debut EP cements the evolution of an artist who’s honed his craft for years; Freddie Future isn’t from there, but he’s got his sights set on it.
