Swedish-American singer songwriter Freddy Hale has a voice that’s a blend of Frank Ocean and James Morrison, and blends modern R&B with pop to create glorious music.
His latest single, ‘Troublemaker’, is accompanied by a cinematic video, shot in and around LA, following a young woman around a house. She starts out with blood on her face; we wonder what’s happened. Next shot she’s entered a house, and explores it inside. There’s no blood on her face, as yet. Interspersed between her shots, we see Freddy singing behind the mic, his powerful voice telling the story of the girl – she’s a real troublemaker.
Someone enters the house, the girl finds knife. She’s not meant to be there. We don’t know what happens next but we see her running in the woods, covered in blood. This girl is definitely trouble. She encounters a figure in black…it’s the perfect match for Freddy’s upbeat track, and leaves us wanting more.
