This is such an unusual and original set. It’s also brilliant. The mix of sounds here is the kind of thing I’ve seldom heard. While I have laid out the basic premise of each piece, you really have to hear this to fully appreciate it. If you like your music adventurous, I highly recommend this.
The Deli Magazine NYC features Frogbelly and Symphony and “Invite to Eternity” from their debut album Blue Bright Ow Sleep, out now on Labelship UK. Check out their tour dates, as they head across the pond for shows in the UK.
With their sound and attitude at times reminiscent of great ’90s UK band Tindersticks (whose music was too dark and decadent to make an impression in the US), and at others veering towards some kind of operatic math cabaret, Brooklyn and Sheffield, UK based band Frogbelly and Symphony just released their debut album Blue Bright Ow Sleep, which was recorded in NYC by legendary producer Martin Bisi.
