The Freight is just plain cool. The Boston-based Blues/Rock band made their debut in 2020 with the single, “Show Me.” Regular readers of The Static Dive first heard from the group in November of 2020 upon the release of their follow-up, “Fish & A Bike.” That house rockin’ track introduced us to an airtight quintet of road warrior musicians led by Adam Tiro, a soulful lead vocalist with guitar chops that would make the late/great Stevie Ray Vaughn proud.
“Try Me On” is the brand new single from The Freight. This time the band steers their Texas-style Blues-shuffle into the realm of Classic Rock & Roll. The song is three minutes of supercharged sexuality and psychedelic Blues rock power. Tiro plays the roles of both Robert Plant and Jimmy Page on a track that at times sounds like a long lost Led Zeppelin song, from the riff-heavy verse to the particularly trippy bridge at 1:30. There is also a cool descending organ refrain that brings to mind Steve Winwood and The Spencer Davis group. While the funked-up rhythm section grooves through the track, Adam pleads with the object of his affection to try him on for size.
Rock & Roll fans of all flavors will find something to love in The Freight’s music. Check out “Try Me On,” below. You can also hear the song on the Deep Indie Dive playlist. Follow the links below to connect with the band and get in the loop on all of their current and future projects.
