There is an irony to a song in which the lyrics explore death while the arrangement brings the song to life. That describes “When We Go” by Toronto’s Freedom Baby. The track begins with a lonely ukulele. The intro is layered, as first one and then another trumpet blanket the ukulele before percussion enters. But the early layering is not what “brings the song to life.” In fact, the ukulele and horns are stripped away when melancholy vocals start the death and dying considerations.
"When We Go" is the first single from the band's upcoming EP.
