A breakup song for the efficiency-minded among us.

A quick break is the cleanest; but the temptation is always there to mitigate the damage, which of course, never works. This hooky kvetch-hymn works as the ultimate ultimatum: if you go, don’t come back.

With that 4-on-the-floor kick drum, and the implied backbeat, we find the groove quickly, which drops out after the chorus, only to come right back. In this way, the indie pop churn creates mood with the electronic flourishes, and together with an array of 80’s-inspired and modern synth, we understand the hype that is simmering around this electro-pop hitmaker.

If you leave, leave me cold
I don’t want to be a shoulder if we’re saying it is over

Leave Me Cold, the latest from Toronto indie pop rising star Freddie Future, is a breakup song for the efficiency-minded among us.

The debut album from Toronto’s Freddie Future (FF) is the story of a breakup in slow motion. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
