Do This! Do That!
Freefaller
(Velocity Records)

A two-song single from the next band up in the play-own-instruments/ write-own-songs boy-band stakes. Considering the uncertainty in the Busted! camp, timing could be a great deal worse. This lot produce a similar sort of bouncy punky rock (Blink-82 etc) but unlike so many wannabe’s have some amusing songs as well. This, their first single, is an ode to teenage rebellion and is catchy as stink. Yes it’s brainless, but not infuriatingly so. The B-side is an acoustic ode to alienation called “Why Me.” Neither song is that original, although it probably will sound like it to their target audience. Would that all pop music be this fun.

    This was done last week or longer. what is it doing here again today?

    It even had some comments back then, I believe.

    You know why I remember? Because I had to break up the long hyphenated phrase in the post.

    freefaller are a great new band and are gna rock 2005!!

  • fishy

    Freefaller are a great band really dedicated and I think you will be more than surprised at the releases that are to come, which will appeal more to the slightly older age group than Do this Do that, which I still find rather appealing anyway. My Grandson and Grandaughter are both big fans and yes they have me hooked as well !!! and I don’t mind one little bit.

    Freefaller are a wonderful band and have been together for about 2 years now…..the new single is wicked and should have done better than 8 which is still awesome!!
    Met them back in October and saw them perform (front row..mwahaha!), they rocked out and were glad to meet some new fans.

    Good luck to the guys!
    Ollie…phwoar!!

    I gave the single 4 out of 5 you fool. And when I looked at the site…ie when I first got this single many months ago it didn’t work very well. It would help if you could read the review before get so nasty.
