Bohemian (noun): a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, especially an artist or writer.
If ever a word could transition from page and ink to bone and flesh, the above would become Freddy Mercury. The Queen singer and one of the most renowned performers of any lifetime led a strangely enigmatic yet public life that gave birth to one of music’s most talented groups, and some of history’s most celebrated songs. Mercury’s personality was reflected in his openly creative mien, giving fans an honest look at himself through both wardrobe and stage presence.
One of the most interesting things about bands who leave a massive mark on the musical world is how they experiment to find not only a new sound, but a new sound to make their own. The new trailer for Bohemian Rhapsody opens the closed doors a bit more into the music making process Queen went through to get their songs on the radio. From operatic notes to cardboard tubes, the exploration helped open the band’s horizon and eventually sell out arenas around the world. No matter when in time, there’s always a new sound to be discovered, and the truly talented find a way.
Bohemian Rhapsody hits theaters on November 2nd.
