You may remember Freddie Van’Dango for having been in the top ten in Idols SA 2011, now Freddie is making headlines in the music industry with the release of his much anticipated debut album, TONIK and is making sure he is known for more.
Rolling Stone SA magazine named Freddie “The Idols Renegade": “Freddie's voice "is expansive and undisciplined – in the best possible way. Something like Pete Doherty meets Freddie Mercury with a scrap of Julian Casablanca’s thrown in for good measure – but, still, distinctively Van'Dango's.”
Freddie says: “Dancy Rock, Pop and Romance with killer melodies are what you can expect from this CD. The kids like it. I really like the work of Charles Bukowski. His work served as inspiration for quite a few ideas and images on my debut album. You’ll hear it on the opening track “TONIK”.
The first single off the album “Shadow” is currently play-listed on Highveld Stereo, UCT Radio, MFM and Bay fm.
The release of TONIK has now got everyone asking when we can expect a tour. We’ve been told that a tour is in the pipeline although no dates have been set just yet, in the interim Freddie is gigging in Gauteng and surrounds until the album tour dates are released. We’ll be the first to let you know!
