This week’s interview features Toronto-born Freedom or Death and the inspiration behind their lyrically-driven, electronic folk tag. Dynamic duo Steve Fernandez and Sway met while working in marketing at a label together and later teamed up to explore a more independent and artistic form of music in the birth of Freedom or Death. Freedom or Death, the Greek war term synonymous with a resistance to oppression and tyranny, is the mentality behind this pair. They are creating lyrically-empowered music which they prefer, not that which the industry supports in order to make an extra buck. With their May release of their album, EGO, this group is undoubtedly unique and original and worth a good listen.
