Needle Drop: The Frisbys, “The Wicked Mind” EP

We first featured alt-folk six-piece The Frisbys way back in 2015 and they seem to have gone from strength to strength ever since. They recently released their vibrant new EP “My Wicked Mind” and it is oozing with poignant lyrics, hook laden melodies, and captivating harmonies throughout.

Opening with their infectious single “I Heard,” this feels like the perfect introduction to the EP from the group. It’s fun, it’s upbeat, and allows sisters Helen and Nicola Frisby’s enchanting harmonies to take centre stage—with help form the rest of their extremely talented band of course.

The EP then takes a slightly more sombre tone and the sisters’ haunting harmonies are joined by Sal Palekar’s intricately delicate piano playing, creating a sound that is undeniably mesmerising and full of emotion. The pace then picks up again for a personal favourite of ours, previously released single, “Gretna.” This feels more akin to The Frisbys’ earlier work and also reminds us of the likes of The Lumineers’ ability to pen infectious alt-folk melodies that are bound to warm your heart. Sam Keer’s electric guitar solo is rather impressive also.

The EP perhaps ends on a slightly too mellow tone, but that’s okay. “Lead Me To The Water is brimming with attitude to begin, before a more fun-filled chorus comes into play lightening the mood a bit more. The EP concludes with the poignant power ballad that is “You Are,” once more showcasing the girls’ effortless chemistry while the rest of the band’s musical talents soar wonderfully underneath. Powerful stuff.

“My Wicked Mind” is in stores now.
