FRIGS is a Toronto-based band that 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 forebears, the band bought recording equipment and turned their Toronto apartment into a studio where they wrote, engineered, and mixed their 2016 Slush EP, and half of their debut full-length.
London 4-piece, Talk Show bring their own brand of twisted, poetic post punk to the stage.
With echoes of bands such as Savages, Magazine and New Order, their solemn yet infectious take is becoming increasingly hard to ignore.
After supporting the likes of Fontaines DC, Crows, Our Girl and Mellah, The Talk Show are fast becoming ones to watch.
An incarnation from 2/3 of Dead Pretties – Jacob manages to merge elements of Jeff Buckley, Radiohead & more whilst sounding completely unique and it's by far one of the most exciting acts we've seen live this year.
