Glorious Sadness from THE FRISBYS — New Track ‘Waves’ Shared + Reviewed Here

We love South London’s Country/Folk purveyors THE FRISBYS whose new EP ‘The Cause‘ is out this week.

Fronted by twin sisters Helen Frisby (vocals and flute) and Nicola Frisby (vocals and guitar ) — the band are already drawing comparisons to Fleetwood Mac, First Aid Kit and The Staves, and they are quickly gaining a reputation on the folk circuit for their striking song writing and their wonderfully stirring harmonies.

The Frisbys - sobconscious sadness...
The Frisbys – sobconscious sadness…

We have been listening to their beautiful new track Waves

This is a clawing, simpering ever-compressing surge of emotion with convulsive gasps of rhythm and fluidly gentle accompaniment…

The vocal is vanilla butter-cream with just a hint of marzipanned piquancy … it never becomes overemotional or overdone.

This may be filled with sobconscious sadness but, somehow, the tenderness here is able to vanquish those bitter winter-day blues…
