‘Glorious and sweetly soulful...there’s an effortless symbiotic chemistry at work in all that they do.’ - GIGWISE

Fronted by twin sisters Helen and Nicola Frisby, The Frisbys are an alternative folk-rock band from South London. With the band drawing comparisons to the likes of Fleetwood Mac. Joseph and First Aid Kit, The Frisbys have gained a reputation for their striking song writing and stirring harmonies.

The past few years have seen The Frisbys support artists including Husky, Mark Chadwick (The Levellers), Messenger and Eamonn Coyne and Kris Drever (LAU) in beautiful and established venues such as Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, 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 blood harmonies, blended with their own unique brand of melodic folk, are their ace card; which singles them out as a rare and promising talent.

With the band already receiving support from the likes of Amazing Radio, BBC Radio, Team Rock Radio, Folk Radio and Daytrotter , the band already boast an impressive collection of fans. This has been further built on with Vinyl District’s recently naming them as Artist of the Week and features in Prog Magazine, Fatea Magazine Showcase Sessions, For Folk’s Sake, Female First and Gigwise.

Following on from the success of their second EP ‘The Cause’ (released in January 2016) and their newly released single 'Gretna' reaching number 16 in the Itunes Country Chart, The Frisbys are excited to be releasing their new EP ‘Lead me to the Water’ in Summer 2018 via Dantobaccus Records.
 

The Frisbys are; Helen Frisby ( Vocals, Flute), Nicola Frisby (Vocals, Guitar), Samuel Keer ( Guitars, Backing Vocals), Sal Palekar (Violin), Will Cattermole (Bass, Backing Vocals) and Tom Finigan (Drums).


Beautiful and often otherworldly...it’s an Epic EP.’ - THE VINYL DISTRICT
