Frank & Fred return with the Smack My Spine EP, a motion-oriented exploration of classic peak hour party sounds. Frank & Fred exhibit enough restraint to mark their veteran status, but this EP has a real forward motion about it… prepare to move.
Make You Take you is a peak hour track with a manufacturer’s limiter on the accelerator. It might be the definition of reserved. The moving organ line in between a jagged bass line fitting of the EP title really evoke a sense of motion, but a lower BPM and minimal top percussion give the track the space to move around, stretch out, and make you freak.
Disco Nights is a bit of a fever dream; an ecstatic journey through multiple soundscapes and frenetic environments. A surreal synth lead welcomes the listener to something different and a staccato and percussive bass synth really punctuate this rabbit hole experience. The combined “thud” may have you seeing colored squared.
Smack My Spine is a grinder of a classic dance floor cut. Punctuated and pronounced bass synths knock their way through a chugging and persistent drums section. A distant organ helps to ground things, but if you can get through this cut without your head nodding, you should see a physician.
