FRIGS are noisey and visceral, and their latest single “Ringworm” is no different. The band takes their loudmouth guitars and strong bass-lines and add all the reverb you could ever want. Lead vocalist Bria is a power pop package, crooning over all the chaos with yelps and coughs near the end.
The band’s vibe is reminiscent of early Sonic Youth and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Front-woman Bria had a lot to say about the writing of the song, lamenting, “I wrote it at a time when I felt like I was surrounded by arrogant men who felt superior to me and everyone else around them…So I guess the song is just a fuck you, whatever, you are a brat, goodbye, I’m going to live my life.”
FRIGS new EP, Slush, is out now. Take a listen to “Ringworm” below.
