The Frisbys release double a-side single
Born and Raised/Give in to the Dark!
For Fas of… First Aid Kit, The Staves, Lily and Madeleine
“…glorious harmonies and sweet, emotive sound…”– For Folk’s Sake
The Frisbys have released their free double a-side single Born and Raised/Give in to the Dark, which is out now via Dantobaccus Records. Both tracks are taken from their forthcoming EP The Cause.
The single stream for Born and Raised premiered on Gigwise but you can also stream and download it now on the band’s Soundcloud page. The Frisbys describe the track as “light hearted and upbeat…almost a countrified version of ‘No Scrubs’ by TLC”.
Helen and Nicola have been singing and playing music together since they were old enough to speak. Having performed as a duo for many years honing their incredible vocal harmonies, it took a boredom call from a broken-legged Marc Robinson (piano, guitar) to convince them to start a full band. The three were joined by Sam Keer (acoustic/electric/slide guitar), and later, Will Cattermole (bass) and Tom Finigan (drums). They have been producing haunting and emotive music ever since.
The video for Give in to the Dark which was filmed predominantly on an idyllic beach and intercut with home video’s from the twins past, reflects the message behind the song which tells the tale of loving somebody suffering with Seasonal Adjustment Disorder (SAD). It lets that person know that they are there for them and waiting for them until the time is right for them to come back and out of their ‘darkness’.
Having received past support from Ruth Barnes, Gary Crowley and Kathryn Tickell on Amazing Radio,Mark Forrest on BBC Radio, Team Rock Radio, Folk Radio and For Folk’s Sake, the band already boast an impressive collection of fans. This is already being built upon, with Born and Raised having recently been featured as Track of The Day on Sarah Gorrell’s Drive Time Show on BBC Sussex.
Born and Raised/Give in to the Dark is available as a free download now and The Cause will be out January 29th 2016 via Dantobaccus Records.
