Atlanta, GA, 2016-Jul-25 — /EPR Network/ — 6 songs from upcoming album “Swimming With the Sharks” now available on Soundcloud
Atlanta electro-rock artist Defraites has released the first five tracks from his much anticipated upcoming album, “Swimming With the Sharks.” These tracks are available on his Soundcloud page at:
Defraites enlisted former bandmate and award winning producer Darrick Atwater (aka Agent Method) to join in the writing process, and ultimately, the crafting of the final product. The two have an undeniable chemistry formed over years of working together. The pair met at the world renowned Atlanta-based Tree Sound Studios in early 2013.
“Darrick and I just click musically. He’s always coming up with ideas to stretch the boundaries which adds fuel to my fire and inspires me to write better lyrics,” said Defraites.
Defraites also collaborated with close friend, social activist and multi-platinum artist, David Banner, on the song “Eye of the Storm.” Defraites recorded a unique rendition of the Selena Gomez mega-hit “Same Old Love,” as well as original compositions: “Blood in the Water,” “Paper Thin,” “Sound the Alarm,” and “Dark Side.” Defraites believes that he’s released 22 minutes of music that will leave his listeners wanting more.
“I couldn’t wait any longer to get this music out to the people. I’m so proud of the work we have put in and watching people light up as they listen is a truly rewarding experience. I certainly have a lot to say and music is my method,” said Defraites.
