Track Premiere: Metal Flesh, Degrees of Freedom

Computer Sourire is delighted to premiere Degrees of Freedom’s first track in nearly thirty years “Metal Flesh” on the upcoming show this Tuesday December 6.

Formed in 1984 by Janet Cadman (vocals and percussion), Martin Chartrand (bass, guitar, rhythm programming) and David Curtis (keyboards and percussion), Degrees of Freedom has long been a missing piece of the puzzle of Montreal’s illustrious synth history. Two and a half decades after the limited release of their 1988 debut record “China” their music has re-emerged online, coinciding with a renewed interest in analogue synth music.
Single “August is an Angel” quickly garnered cult status amongst a new generation of synth enthusiasts. A cross between new wave and the minimal synth sensibilities of the early to mid 80’s “August is an Angel” features a striking synth melody supported by an equally sinuous bassline.  Cadman and Curtis' twin vocals on the track are reminiscent of a cross between Carol Pope of Rough Trade and Human League harmonies circa 'Dare'. "
Currently working on new material, the band is looking forward to potential reissues of their older work. 
Tune in to Computer Sourire this Tuesday at 4pm to catch the premiere of Degrees of Freedom’s new track Metal Flesh”
