Alt-folk six-piece The Frisbys return with the release of their new EP My Wicked Mind, out 26th June 2020.
Ahead of the new release, the band have unveiled ‘I Heard’, which introduces the EP with both singers’ rich celestial vocals complimenting the uplifting musicality perfectly. Fans of the likes of The Lumineers or First Aid Kid will feel at home here. Talking about the single, the band elaborate, “I Heard is a fighting song. It’s about maintaining an endless determination to push through, even when everyone is telling you that what you are trying to achieve is impossible. I Heard is about having the belief to do it anyway.”
My Wicked Mind is a collection of songs that explore both the inner turmoil and resolute strength of the human mind. Each song combines hook-laden melodies with powerful lyricism in order to create a sound that is utterly striking.
Helen and Nicola have been making music together since they were old enough to speak. Having performed as a duo for many years, the pair joined forces with university friends Sam Keer (electric guitar) and Marc Robinson to form an acoustic quartet and released their debut EP Philosolove in 2013.
After looking to develop a fuller sound, they recruited old college friends Tom Finigan (drums), Will Cattermole (bass) and university buddy Sal Palekar (violin, piano) in 2015, completing the line up. Marc left the band in 2017 to pursue other interests but does still feature on My Wicked Mind.
