    The past months in 2012 have been a whirlpool for F2g. This emergent duo rapidly caught the attention of fans, media and prog-radio DJ’s. Whilst working on the first full-length release (due out in early 2013), Pete Riley and Andy Nixon have decided to create a successor to their debut EP which made such big waves…
    Some material on ‘The Wait’ is again quite close to Pink Floyd, though in general Freedom To Glide are imposing their own stamp. There are various references to be found here. They swirl from balladic sections to mid-tempo dramatic grooves with a lot of breathing space. The opener (‘Wind and Gales’) gives a taste of things to come: a well conceived and executed 24-min. opus. Andy Nixon's voice is wrapped in strong harmonies to revel in a guitar web and hypnotic key layers, while atmospheric soundscapes and rhythmic parts afford an enthralling interplay that impresses with flourishes. Surprising variations of main motif are smartly arranged to build a recurrent theme. The ultimate credit goes to Pete Riley whose work presents a solid foundation without being dominant. The lyrics are representative and typify so apt for engrossing concept. One of the six tracks is instrumental. Definitely thumbs up! It’s not easy to pick out only one favourite, but I’m hooked by a powerful closing number ‘Hypnotized’ (stylistically, it’d be at home on ‘The Wall’)…

    To sum it up, 'The Wait' has many elements needed to be a near perfect record. In my collection it deserves a special place (next to PF- back catalogue). Freedom To Glide is a unique band who can create historically based musical theatre geared towards the ears and mind. And I shall keep an eye out to see where F2g goes from here…

    Last Sunday's PROG MILL Radio Show on Stafford Radio, which included an interview with Pete and Andy from FREEDOM TO GLIDE and the world premiere radio play of their new mini album 'The Wait', that was inspired by the experiences of Pete's grandfather who survived the Somme in the first world war.

    You can download the podcast, split into one hour mp3 file ((including the F2G interview and the mini album in its entirety).

    It will be repeated Tuesday night (13 Nov) between 10pm and midnight on www.abcradio.co.uk, between 10pm-11pm

    Rumors reached me that F2g have now got the full track-list for the Rain album agreed. It looks like the official release date should be announced any time now. And as soon as I hear more I'll let you know.
