Today, Toronto’s FRIGS share the new track “Doghead” which was “inspired by a character in Nick Cave's And The Ass Saw the Angel, using partial dialogue directly from the novel,” says vocalist Bria. “Themes in the song include how lustful behaviours and jealously play into a desire for power.”
“Doghead” is the first track to emerge from the band's debut album due for release in early 2018 through Arts & Crafts. More details on the LP will become available soon. Fresh off their show at Toronto’s Massey Hall supporting Slowdive earlier this month, FRIGS begin their European run with Wolf Parade today. Full tour dates can be found below.
FRIGS pairs the raw, emotional grunge of PJ Harvey with the immersive, psychedelic post-punk of early Sonic Youth. With each member bringing a unique set of influences, FRIGS creates a sound that is hard to pin down and an impression that’s unshakable.
Led by the force of Bria’s vocals, the band has earned a reputation for putting on an hypnotic and visceral live performance. Embracing the mercurial and experimental, their shows are built upon instinct; a vocal growl can unexpectedly give way to a hushed whisper; languid drones boil over into guttural and searing tones.
Maintaining the communal, do-it-yourself spirit of their forbearers, the band bought recording equipment and turned their Toronto apartment into a studio where they wrote, engineered, and mixed their 2016 Slush EP and two-sided single “Chest” / “Trashyard”.
