Down beat pop newcomer...
Minimal Love artwork

Freddie Dickson has posted new track 'Minimal Love' - check it out below.

Pop has rarely been so sophisticated. From Lana Del Rey to current Clash cover star Lorde, it seems that mean, moody and quite magnificent is the order of the day.

So why is it the girls who get all the fun? Pop lacks a male counterpoint to these artists, but newcomer Freddie Dickson could yet fulfil this role.

Signing to Lily Allen's label ITNO, the singer has only placed a handful of tracks online. Labelled 'DOOM TOP' on SoundCloud, it's easy to see why: there's an inertia, a sense of inner collapse rippling through these tracks, a wistful melancholy which is beautifully infectious.

Yet there's a slick, smooth side to what Freddie Dickson does. His voice contains that integral element of soul, with new cut 'Minimal Love' sitting somewhere between Marvin Gaye and The Weeknd.

Listen to it now.
