‘Freaking Out’ started with this pitch sliding sound that I had in my head. It was the flute like, main lead hook sound you hear. I created that first and then had to come up with a bassline to fit so the 2 would play off each other. The vocal idea came last; I have a notepad where I scribble little notes whenever they come to me. I felt like those lines fitted the track best. I reached out to my buddy Ellis and asked if he could record the lines. And boom; Track done! – Said Dave Winnel.
