The Frixion is a sonic duet that has enough sound to satiate any sonic palate. Based between the UK (Lloyd on keys and programming) and Berlin (Gene on vocals and songwriting, the two have cut their teeth on an eclectic smorgasbord that serves up a sonic edge and a singular sound.
Their latest release from their most recent album, I Cannot Play These Games is a look into the dramatic change sweeping over the EU, with lyrics that bite.
With Lloyd (keyboards, programming and production) based in the UK and Gene (vocals, song writing, all-round ice goddess) in Germany – Berlin to be precise, The Frixion were destined to have an edgy duality to their sound. Described as a perfect wave of Brit synthpop and Neue Deustche Welle, this a song that has been years in the making, but definitely worth the wait.
Says the duo about this song in particular: “I think it’s one of my best songs ever” says Gene, “but for what sounds so throwaway, I genuinely feel it has more to it than first meets the ear”.
“I’ve been listening to lot of Coldwave stuff lately” adds Lloyd. “I really wanted to tap into that cool (rockier) vibe. The nice big drums and that driving bass line come from that. But then you add Gene’s gorgeous vocals and it becomes The Frixion once more”.
