Is electropop back? Was it ever here? What decade is this? Where am I? These are the questions you may be asking yourself after listening to Firefly, the most recent EP from the electronic pop duo known as The Frail.
If you’re a fan of synthesized beats, high falsetto vocals, or 80’s electronic rock bands like the Eurythmics, then you will find The Frail refreshing, creative and way cooler than Flock of Seagulls. If that doesn’t sound like your cup of musical tea than Firefly will not likely convert you.
With only five songs all under three-and-a-half minutes the entire album can be breezed through in under 15 minutes. The beats don’t assault the ears and the vocals blend seamlessly into the background making the songs perfect for commercial use. Tracks have already been heard on MTV Road Rules (which apparently still exists) and Keeping up with the Kardashians among others. With a resume like that The Frail are destined to be part of the soundtrack of reality TV for years to come.
Firefly will soon be re-released under Granville Records with two new singles, bringing the track count to a staggering seven and will be available on . Check it out if you are looking for the latest and best electropop music, or just wait for the next episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami.
