Freewheeler are a hot new band from London, made up of three energetic dudes and a female bassist, who manages to lay down a nice groove lending these rockers an almost danceable feel.
Their sound is hard to describe, but I do hear hints of D-Generation, The Wildhearts, Dogs D'amour, Hanoi Rocks and Bang Tango within these tunes. They take the best aspects of each and combine them, generating excellent songs.
'Sweet Liberty' ... a "rocker" resembling D-Generation; 'Last Vacation' ... mid-tempo and reminiscent of the Wildhearts and 'Cold Affection' ... a slower song but not a ballad, I definitely hear similarities to Bang Tango at times.
can picture this bands energy, swagger and attitude on stage in a jam-packed,
smoke filled bar; legs apart, guitars slung low and sneers on their faces as
they sing the anthemy, sing along choruses of these great songs. I would recommend
this band to any fans of the aforementioned bands. Don't forget to check them
