"Messenger, The Custodian & The Frisbys @ The Borderline, London"

“The Frisbys’ music is very folky and their enjoyable half hour set contained a rather lovely downbeat version of Blue Oyster Cult’s ‘(Don’t Fear) The Reaper’. The real impact came when they combined to create stunning harmonies that were sublime. Highlight of the set for me was the brooding ‘Give In To The Dark.”

"Forksters Daily Band Review"

“The Frisbys are an absolutely exquisite folk defined sound hailing out of London, England! Their eloquent song arrangements are centred by fantastic and melodic glowing vocals/harmonies that are expertly surrounded by superb musicianship performance elements of folk, alternative rock and proper pop flows. They are ‘without a doubt’ an ‘up & coming’ unsigned band that really I foresee having really rocking roads ahead! - Forkster”

Fronted by twin sisters Helen and Nicola Frisby, The Frisbys, are an alternative folk band from South London. Their debut E.P ‘Philosolove’ was released in 2013 and met with much success, featuring as ‘new and noteworthy’ on ITunes, reaching 45 in the singer songwriter charts and receiving radio play from  Amazing Radio, Team Rock and BBC Radio stations. 

With the band drawing comparisons to Fleetwood Mac, First Aid Kit and The Staves, The Frisbys are quickly gaining a reputation on the folk circuit for their striking song writing and stirring harmonies. The past few years have seen The Frisbys support artists including Mark Chadwick (The Levellers), Messenger and Eamonn Coyne and Kris Drever (LAU) in beautiful and established venues such as The Borderline,The Natural History Museum and St Pancras Old Church.

The musical evolution of The Frisbys has been a journey that began from the moment the girls could talk. “We were immersed in music from a very young age”, Nicola remembers. “We were always singing together around the house, arranging 60s pop songs into close harmony and fighting over the radio during long car journeys.” 

 Undeniably, their close knit harmonies blended with their own unique brand of melodic folk are their ace card, singling them out as a rare and promising talent. “People often say how strange it is that although we are twins, our voices are so different.” Helen explains, “And yet when we sing together our voices seem to blend with each other.”

 A few years later during some late night jamming sessions with friends Sam Keer and Marc Robinson, the band ‘The Frisbys’ was born. Now a four piece, ‘The Frisbys’ were able to inject a whole new dimension to their sound with influences ranging from country and rock to Americana.   With their distinctive sound, in which male and female vocal harmonies marry and soar above the delicate instrumentation of flutes, guitars and dobros, they are quickly becoming known as one of the best up and coming bands on the London folk scene.

The Frisbys have received wide support from blogs and press, with their title track ‘Philosolove’ being chosen for Fatea Magazine’s Showcase Sessions and For Folk’s Sake's song of the day feature. They have also recently been featured in the 2014, 50th edition of PROG Magazine's Limelight feature.

The Frisbys are looking forward to releasing their much anticipated follow up EP, 'The Cause',  in January 2016 and, with two new additions to their live line-up, Tom Finnigan (Drums) and Will Cattermole (Bass/Guitar),  are  currently in the process of preparing for their upcoming Autumn tour.
