Needle Drop, The Frisbys “The Cause” EP

One can never tire of a good harmony. Something about the sounds made by two or more intertwining vocal melodies is beautiful and often otherworldly. Twins Nicola and Helen Frisby have been creating such harmonies for years.

Now on The Frisbys’ second EP, “The Cause” they have used their harmonic talents in conjunction with some strong writing to produce a great six song collection. With tracks that deal with a wide array of issues, both of the lighter and darker sides of life, it’s an epic EP.

Lead track “Born and Raised” is a prominent moment. Released as part of the double a-side single along with “Give Into The Dark,” the twins’ songwriting shines with some fantastic use of melody and great hooks, kicking off the EP in style.

My favourite track, “Lines” is quite obviously a love song and feels very sincere, however the aspect that really helps it stand out is the outro section where an entirely unexpected electric guitar appears and really ups the intensity of the tune. Coming at the midway on the EP, it really helps create a high point.

If you enjoy folk, then “The Cause” will be right up your street—with prospects for a long career all but certain.

“The Cause” is out on 29th January 2016 via Dantobaccus Records.
