Good Freddy: 25-letna pot od Doryan Gray do Brezna

No, da ne boste mislili, da se nam je utrgalo na stara leta, s to umetnostjo. 😊 Se nam ni.

Ker dežuje in se vam dá brat, jaz to vem 😁, ker vas čutim, lahko preberete ta moj daljši zapis.

Predstavljava se vam kot dvojec, Marin Knezevic in Mojca, združena kot družina in bend v Good Freddy. Najino sodelovanje se je začelo pred 25 leti, ko smo začeli ustvarjati kot štirojec (Tomaž Gregorc – kitara, Gašper Štrancar – bobni, Marin – bas in jaz, cvrkuća ptica) pod imenom Doryan Gray – nekje smo se podpisovali tudi Dorian Gray in šele kasneje spoznali, da nismo mi Masimo Savić. 🌈

Ko sem bila še mala, smo kot družina zelo radi večglasno prepevali. Na okenski polici, v 1. nadstropju, v Koprski 5, v Izoli, se me je dalo tudi poslušati, slišati in videti. Nekateri to veste. 😁 Pela sem tudi v OŠ zboru in nonetu pri čici Zlatki Knez. 😁

Konec 80′ smo se mladi znanci in sosedje združili v bend The Loom. V tem bendiču smo igrali in peli, pokojni Maksi na bobnih, Sahbas Elvis na kitari, Marko Gregorič na basu in moja malenkost, sem pela. Pravzaprav sem vedno in povsod pela, če se je le dalo. 😜 Ko se nas je Marko znebil 😂, je njegov prostor zapolnil novi član, Šik Andrej in nam prilepil ime Alice B. Talkless.

Moram priznati, da mi je bilo kasneje, kar malo nerodno poslušati mlade The Loom in pa tudi Alice B. Talkless. ☺️ Zdaj, sem ponosna na naše stvaritve. ❤️ Sploh pa na Doryan Gray. 💐 Z igranjem smo prenehali leta 2002.

Od takrat naprej, so kar 20 let nastajale nove pesmi in glasbene podlage. Skoraj vse sva jih združila, v lani izdanem glasbenem prvencu, ki nosi naslov, Brezno.⚘️ Brezno je bilo res obdobje brezna. 🙄

Tokrat pa vam ponujava nekaj zares drugačnega, z zelo “hard core” sporočilom. Verjetno boste lahko video pogledali 1. in zadnjič. 🤷‍♀️ Zaenkrat pa vam ponujava samo eno skromno fotko. “Borša image” je delo naše tamale 💐 Refren se pa tudi bere z nje. 🍎

Video bo na ogled najbrž konec tega tedna 🥳

The Buzz Before the Storm: Good Freddy at Libertas Festival

Before we let loose our punk poet magic at Libertas Festival, some pretty rad media outlets were already talking about us. Check out these pre-gig mentions that prove we were a part of the festival’s buzz from the get-go.

Podhrast – Underoak – EP3

A sponge from the Adriatic sea. Mojca from now on is selling this creatures for a stupid amount of money. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Check it out Bob! 🐙🦀🐬🐳

Podhrast – Underoak Ep 2

We talked about young people and their charity and sang a song at the end. Well, now you don’t need to watch the next episode, because I already spoiled the content. 😳 Good job me. 😭 😄

2nd album review by Vanja Pegan

GOOD FREDDY – BREZNO

Good Freddy je zasedba, ki s svojo glasbo nedvomno živi svoj čas tako v smislu žanra, kot v smislu sporočilnosti svoje glasbe. Morda lahko zvoku pripišem odmev zgodnjih osemdesetih, tedanje nove romantike, ki me s hipnotičnimi loopi ponese (najbolj izrazit 4 taktni loop v komadu SAVE US) v značilno privzdignjeno vzdušje. Ko vse skupaj le še potrdijo prezentna tolkala, sploh pa njihova himnična, na trenutke malce teatralična postavitev, glasba kar dobro sede. Tudi kitare, njih značilni zvok, in synthi zvenijo prepričljivo. Vokal je interpretativno malce odmaknjen, ni patetičen in na trenutke – to je moje skromno mnenje – malce preveč »v ozadju«.

Album je glasbeno in v besedilih zelo temačen, a v mojem dojemanju nikakor ne turoben. Temne strani so del naših življenj, a navkljub vsemu, (»Bravo Mojca!« op. av.) zaslišimo skladbo HIMNA, ki je tako nepretenciozno svetla, čeprav zapeta mirno in resignirano.

Besedila so prodorna in dobro zlita z glasbo, to daje albumu uravnoteženost. Besedila Mojce Ferle so angažirana, dobro napisana in iskrena. Piše v slovenščini in angleščini. Iskrenost v vseh segmentih ustvarjanja generira kvaliteto, seveda je za končni izdelek potreben tudi talent…. Imaš to, GOOD FREDDY.

Album je izvirno likovno opremila / interpretirala Philos Sophia Ferle Knežević

EN version:

GOOD FREDDY – BREZNO

Good Freddy is a band that undoubtedly lives its time through its music, both in terms of genre and in terms of the messages their music conveys. Perhaps I can attribute the sound to echoes of the early eighties, the then-new romanticism, which takes me away with its hypnotic loops (most notably the 4-beat loop in the song SAVE US) into a characteristically uplifted mood. This feeling is only reinforced by the current percussion, especially their anthemic, at times slightly theatrical arrangement, which sits really well. Even the guitars, their distinctive sound, and the synths are quite convincing. The vocals seem a bit distant in interpretation, are not overly emotional, and at times – in my humble opinion – are a bit too much “in the background.”

The album, both musically and in its lyrics, is very dark, but in my perception, it’s not melancholy. Dark sides are part of our lives, but despite everything (a shoutout “Bravo Mojca!” by the author), we hear the song HIMNA, which is so unpretentiously bright, even though it’s sung calmly and resignedly.

The lyrics are piercing and blend well with the music, giving the album balance. Mojca Ferle’s lyrics are engaged, well-written, and sincere. She writes in Slovenian and English. Sincerity in all aspects of creation generates quality, but of course, talent is also required for the final product… You have that, GOOD FREDDY.

The album’s original visual design/interpretation was done by Philos Sophia Ferle Knežević.

GOOD FREDDY members are: Mojca Ferle – vocals, guitar / Marin Knežević – backing vocals, guitar, drums, PC / mix, recording, production – Gaber Radojevič – Parametrik studio & Good Freddy.
