Australia's washed-out and hazy dream-pop wave is pushing out a lot of great acts right now, from the big, international-dominating names like Hatchie right through to the small, bedroom-based bands releasing some incredible music real early in their careers. Melbourne four-piece Frida are a band more in the latter but hold the potential to explode into the former category of names, bringing this breezy sound to the table with their new EP, these are all the things we've found. Officially out tomorrow (but streaming exclusively on Pilerats a day early - you're welcome), these are all the things we've found is a six-track exploration of this dreamy sound, mixing these warm and comforting guitar-driven sounds with emotive lyrics that reflect the band's growth - both collectively and personally - floating over the top. "these are all the things we’ve found is a diary of emotions, change and sonic musings," says the band on the EP. "We're happy to soon share it with you, and let it have it's own life while we look at other projects of ours individually and in different combinations. Frida will be here for us when we need it, and we hope this little collection will leave you with some lasting satisfaction, like a muesli bar."
While the EP is all centred around this washed-out sound, the EP's six-track-duration allows the band to incorporate unique shadings and tones to each song to set them apart from the rest. There are slight intertwinings of soul and pop amongst the predominately guitar-driven backbone, with layers of psych-esque indie also featuring heavily. It's a stellar release, so be sure to check it out in all its glory below before its official release this Friday. Also, catch them launch the EP early next month with a show at The Gasometer with Electric Toothbrush & Hemm - tickets and more details HERE.
