about

Aptly titled, Frida’s new single Limbo is the musical floating point between any number of different states – is it pop or soul? Dark or hopeful? 1976 or 2016?

Late in 2015, Frida descended into their home studio in an evasive Brunswick side street (Wyall Style) to write and produce their newest and most mature work yet. Restive and rhythmic, Limbo is a result of these sessions.

Limbo dives headfirst into the agony of waiting; the lyric describes teetering on the edge of a decision and everything that resides in the space between choices. Limbo rises from, and descends back into, a melting pot of texture; driving guitar lines, symphonic synths and Eilish Gilligan’s honey-sweet vocals combine to create a simmering concoction of influence and experience. Think Leon Bridges versus Florence and the Machine at the crossroads between this universe and the next.

Recorded, and produced by the band themselves, Limbo is a deeply thoughtful release that reflects serious potential within Frida. The group have just come off the back of a hugely successful 2015, with the launch of their imprint record label Wyall Style in collaboration with HopeStreet Recordings, and their single Slowly garnering play and praise from both Triple J and Double J alike.

lyrics

The first thought after was:
“just like the movies…”
The next thought after was:
“wow, how you moved me.”

And then
It was back to when we first met
How we were drunk and laughing then
Barefoot kids in the kitchen
Dancing round til 3am
I bite my tongue
You watch it all go slowly
Lucky for some
We watch it all go slowly
Last week my stomach spoke
“Look out for the next time.”
Last night you were white as hell -
and I knew I was right.

And then
It was back to L, you, and me
Lying naked on the bed
Cross-eyed kids in the shit again
Watching them all go by
(I bite my, I bite my, I bite my tongue)

about

Frida Melbourne, Australia

The very definition of dreamy, this eccentric six-piece is led by Eilish Gilligan, a whimsical flower child with the giant voice of a choirgirl possessed.

Buoyed by haunting harmonies, pop prowess and a percolating rhythm section, Frida’s melodic assault has captivated music lovers and makers alike.
