free-energy-2Free Energy have a number irresistible singles across their two albums and EP.  Things started off well with their debut song “Free Energy.” There is something audacious and mildly amusing about forcing deejays to say ‘here’s “Free Energy” by Free Energy!’  Say what?  Even before they got their own material out, they had a killer cover of Springsteen’s “I’m Going Down.”  Their 2010 debut album Stuck on Nothing channels a mixture of Bachman Turner Overdrive riffing with 1980s pop song sensibilities.  “Light Love” has it all – swirling, candy-coated guitar sounds, fattened up vocals, and some great slow burn hooks.  2013’s Love Sign offers up more of the same, along with a few more languid pop gems, like “Dance All Night.” Free Energy are like a retro-1980s dance party band, but with fresh material.  Since 2013, things have slowed considerably for the band, with some solo material from various band members emerging.  However, their Facebook page did recently indicate that more would be coming from this band.
