A good song has the power to evoke feelings of joy, nostalgia and even melancholy but a great song will take you deeper, to another place and time. That’s exactly the power that Company Freak wields in their first single “Sexaholic”. Featuring the vocals of Tony-nominated Broadway and recording star Vivian Reed, Sexaholic sounds like a synth-funk/electro-boogie anthem taken from a dance floor somewhere in 1981.
Company Freak stands as a homage to 70s orchestral disco-soul and 80s post-disco artists like Chic, Change, Kool & The Gang, Boney M, Kid Creole & The Coconuts, and Midnight Star – a retro feel that recalls the freewheeling sound of Studio 54 and the Paradise Garage, and the glistening nu-disco of the Scissor Sisters, Daft Punk, Hot Chip, Jessica 6 and Tensnake. Mixed by Eric Broucek (LCD Soundsystem) and engineered by Alex Nizich (Hercules & Love Affair, Antony & The Johnsons), Company Freak are a revolving multi-generational cast of vocalists and session players that include music legends from the 70s and 80s as well as up-and-coming 21st century stars.
