“For the audience who is looking for a solid convergence of rock and hip hop, Freaks For Geeks will certainly suit your search, as their tracks bring both styles together tastefully while still making their music a unique find.”


BUCKET FULL OF NAILS

“Freaks for Geeks, Chicago’s musical amphisbaena, draw from rock and hip-hop influences to create a bipolar hybrid of sludge jams and jaunty indie pop.”


THE TOTAL SCENE

“Whether you call them rap-rock or rock-hop, Chicago band Freaks for Geeks is helping add to the vibrancy of the Chicago music scene.” Full interview


POPWRAPPED

“Lyrically and sonically Freaks for Geeks consistently deliver thought provoking content that places them ahead of the game and is hugely listenable to any fans of rap or rock.”


FLOORSHIME ZIPPER BOOTS

“Heavy and melodic with a strong dynamic sense, the four tracks evoke comparisons to Linkin Park and Rage Against The Machine. Their blistering brand of hip-hop laced rock has an infectious beat and edgy vibe.”


DAYS WITH DESTINY

“Whatever It Takes is a strong offering from the young band, and it perfectly displays the band’s musical perspective. With their fresh sound, sharp lyrics, and live instrumentation Freaks for Geeks brings a lot to the table.”


LOCAL LOOP CHICAGO

“Rap rock is often a dirty word, recalling some lame dudes who take themselves too seriously…But here’s what’s great about Freaks for Geeks: they’re fun, hooky and don’t trudge into whiny territory.”


MIDWEST ACTION

“In a touch over three minutes, the band proves their ability to fuse their two distinct sides logically into one song. The balance between the elements that make up this track make it a good listen – and a fun one, too.”
