«Tim Freitag is playing themselves note-by-note into the hearts of music fans.» SRF
«A fresh young band aiming for the heights.» NegativeWhite
Although still in the springtime of their budding careers, Tim Freitag’s tunes have a mature, more autumnal spirit to them: withering, fading relationships, torn, shattered hearts, dark, ominous clouds on the horizon.
But if based on their melodies the folk of Zürich imagine a band of grizzled, grey-bearded grandpa artists past their prime, well, then they’ve got another thing coming! Songs like «Another Heart Has Lost Its Place» or «Bruises» start off smooth, soothing, slow only to give more power, more impact to the guitar string storm of thunder coming later on. «Baby I’ll Go» doesn’t simper around too long with unnecessary foreplay, but goes right to the throat with pelvis-swinging action, through danceable sounds unashamedly embracing deep 60’s roots and tipping its hat to modern Indie Rock.
Even though their music contains an after-note of Autumn, Tim Freitag’s Pop’n’Roll is suitable as the full-blast soundtrack for all the four seasons, twenty-four hours a day, all the days of the week!
