Fraea are an juxtaposing duo comprised of Jessie Daley and Drew Preiner.
Fraea’s name has been stylised on Freyja, the goddess of beauty, love and sex, but also death, war and the underworld. On the one side, their sound fits into the bubblegum pop genre, but on the other, it’s dark electronica.
Regardless of their genre, the music of Fraeahas been formed following years and years of scribbling passionate and lonely love songs on notebook pages, and we think that is somewhat bittersweet.
Fraea will play their second ever show on 2 March with POLIÇA at Turf Club in St. Paul, MN.
Their debut EP, ‘Bend Your Bones’ will be out on 29 April.
Nimmo are a unique electronic five-piece who can be traced back to the decade-long friendship of co-vocalists (and football-obsessives) Sarah Nimmo and Reva Gauntlett.
Citing 80’s and 90’s pop influences from the likes of Tears for Fears, New Order, and Everything But The Girl, as well as jungle, and drum n bass, Nimmo have immersed themselves not only with the sounds of the club culture, but also located the moods of aggression, energy and heartache within that which would add depth to their songwriting.
Having already collaborated with Tim Goldsworthy (DFA) and Maya Jane Coles, they have now teamed up with Boxed In (aka Oli Bayston) for more of an infectious pop track with ‘UnYoung’.
Lyrically, the band describe ‘UnYoung’ as “a song about the fear of our parents or loved ones in general dying, and only being remembered in photographs on a mantelpiece. As the instrumentation progressed, ‘UnYoung’ became a celebration of your family and just being alive.”
Nimmo have been shortlisted for MTV Brand New 2016. The annual showcase for MTV Brand New 2016 will be at the Electric Ballroom, London on 27 January.
‘UnYoung’ is out early 2016 via Columbia Records.
