Freaks of the Sea – “Hypocrite”

Portland-based alternative act Freaks of the Sea show a smooth, gliding feel with a bit of warbled funk on new track “Hypocrite”, released on Friday. “Yeah, I’m a hypocrite,” the chorus goes, breaking into a wonderfully atmospheric funk-tinged bridge thereafter past the one-minute mark. There’s a widely accessible appeal here, though enough structural variation to veer away from overly predictable territory, despite the conventional use of chorus. Check out the track’s video below, and expect more tracks/videos from the act in the coming months.
