Fred Fredas releases 'addictions' Music Video

To be conscious is to “be aware of one’s own existence, sensations, thoughts, or surroundings.” So when you hear conscious music, how does it make you feel? ‘Addictions’ is the 3rd track on the sophomore EP ‘P.A.U’ (Politics As Usual) from 22 year old Artist, Fred Fredas. In his music, Fredas reflects on societal issues that affect the consciousness of people.

Through his thought provoking lyrics, he hopes to raise awareness and enlighten his audience on hard-hitting subjects - such as addiction & domestic violence; alongside exploring freedom from reality that people sometimes seek, which can be seen in the ‘Addictions’ video.

As a self-confessed romantic, Bodur conveys her heartfelt introspection through sultry harmonies, which ride atop a hybrid of ambient neo-soul, smooth jazz arrangements and soulful melodies.

Fred Fredas releases visuals for 'Ain't Fooling Me'

Fred Fredas has dropped his awaited music video for ‘Ain’t Fooling Me’, taken offthe sophomore EP ‘P.A.U’ (Politics As Usual),. The 22 year old Artist/Songwriter/Musician released his latest EP on January 27th 2017 which showed his versatility and poetic tone as an artist.

Written from a female’s perspective towards the scenario of being emotionally and mentally broken by a male. ‘Ain’t Fooling Me’ follows the spectrum of emotions within a destructive relationship, and displays the internal battle between the females past and present self. This tale of heartbreak effortlessly evolves within a short duration 3 minutes and 39 seconds. The Ain’t Fooling Me’ music video – directed by Yasmin Afifi, is a dramatically vivid display of the females internal battle between her past and present self.

Fredas explains, “To summarise this video… when situations happen to us, we are constantly battling within ourselves, it feels as though we are trapped and the question we ask ourselves is…Will we allow the demon within us to prevail, or the love within us to prevail?”

By casting twins to play the females two different sides, ‘Kindness’ and ‘Hate’, it is a clear demonstration of the scenario that unfolds throughout Fredas’ story-like, lyrical flow. In the video we see ‘Kindness’ try to consul ‘Hate’ – however this proves unsuccessful and the two sides battle; until fate forces them to become one.
