The weekend, your vacation, sense of self-satisfaction, orgasms, the taste of pizza and other dope things never stop when you're listening to indie pop duo Freedom Fry. Their latest song "Party Down" is a jewel of sparkling synth and melodies. The band consists of Marie Seyrat and Bruce Driscol, and the video was directed by Michelle Shiers, shot at Good Times at Davey Wayne's in Los Angeles. "Party Down" is from Freedom Fry's Strange Attraction EP, set for release on September 7. You'll also want to keep an eye on their Soundcloud page if you know what's good for your heart (the answer is indie pop). "Lights out, party down," Seyrat sings. Yeah boi.

"'Party Down' is a song about getting through the grind of your daily life and wanting to make the good times last longer," Freedom Fry wrote to Noisey. "Having the foresight when you're in a good moment to realize that once it's over you're going to miss it. We were playing with synths as lead elements, which we haven't done very much as a band. We wanted the beat to feel like a cross between Michael Jackson and the more danceable songs by The Clash. Once that was in place the rest of it just came together." Watch the video for "Party Down."

Devin Pacholik enjoys to dance/eat pizza. Pizza dance with him on Twitter.
