Make Me Move is drenched in steamy longing. With her jaw-dropping range on full display, the sensual and personal lyrics are taken from the bellows of her lower range to mystic heights and back again.
"I wrote this song before quarantine about deep yearning for my long-distance partner. It was my challenge to strip everything away to primal instincts. When quarantine hit, it forbid us from seeing each other and the relationship ended, causing a spiral into craving and a deep dive into intimate voicemails that have been sampled on the song," L'FREAQ says Describing the new single.
Make Me Move was written by L'FREAQ and Kyle McCammon (from the LA-based indie-rock band Lean) and produced by Theo & the Climb (LA-based production duo consisting of Aaron “A08” Berton & Matt Crawford) with help from McCammon. The live drums are by Steve Goold (from Sara Bareilles, Owl City, Ben Rector). The single was mix by Mike Seaberg and mastered by Dan Coutant at Sun Room Audio.
Having shared a stage with ABBA, India.Arie and Jakob Dylan, it’s important to note L'FREAQ's live performance prowess, even without tour dates on the books (speaking of longing). L'FREAQ played a packed NYC performance debut at SoHo House, and channeled Britney Spears (especially during her ferocious "Toxic" cover"), Nick Cave and Beats Antique vibes.
The new single follows L’FREAQ’s debut EP, Weird Awakenings, released in 2018 which played with themes of self-discovery. Armed with a full book of poetry, L'FREAQ took pieces of her work and composed songs with Mike Irish, who also produced and mixed the EP at Shifted Recording Studios. The EP was mastered by Stuart Hawkes at Metropolis London Music. They took their time in discovering a sound that felt genuine, one that explored all the raw places she had been longing to find. Together, they created a modern amalgamation of L’FREAQ's dark, thoughtful poetry and her raw musical instincts, which inevitably alchemized into songs that are all at once aggressive, sensual and moving.
With over 500k streams, 240K plays on YouTube, and songs featured in “Riverdale,” Playboy, Netflix’s “Dating Around, "Good Trouble," "FBI," "The Voice," "City on a Hill" and more — all born from her 5-song debut EP, this new single, "Make Me Move," satisfies the longing for more L’FREAQ, but just enough to want more.
