FRIGS

Toronto post-punk band FRIGS have shared their new single “Solid State”. The track is off their debut full-length Basic Behaviour, out February 23 via Arts & Crafts. FRIGS, start their North American tour on March 3rd in Montreal.

“‘Solid State’ is a stream-of-consciousness/subconscious conversation with myself, effectively more a confessional than a diary entry” frontwoman Bria Salmena says of the track. “The spoken vocals are stark and unfiltered, as their delivery is meant to be intimate and familiar. The song became a representation of the conversations that occur in your head when you are alone.”

Basic Behaviour, FRIGS’ debut, self-produced full-length, was written and recorded over a 16-month period, split between two locations: the band’s home studio and Union Sound Company in the east end of Toronto. As much as the lyrical subject matter within the record reflects personal experiences of frontwoman Bria Salmena, the album is a product of years of self discovery as a unit. Recording at home allowed the band to take the time to explore their sound, experimenting with sonic textures and production, and meticulously re-working their material. These sessions proved to be invaluable in creating a sound unique to FRIGS. However, a degree of positive urgency was deemed necessary in order to finalize the process. Working with engineer Ian Gomes.
