Frost* in May, but no worries, it is not a climatic phenomena. Frost*, the band, releases with ‘Others’ a new EP which is actually not that new.
Jem Godfrey and his band mates have recorded six tracks, which are left overs from their ‘Falling Satellites’ session. Initially, the 2016 released album was planned as a double release. However, the band decided to make it a regular album in order to keep it compact and dense. The six tracks that are now released as ‘Others’ are the ‘other’ songs, tunes that didn’t make it onto ‘Falling Satellites’.
The band offers on ‘Others’ a wide range of sounds. There is for example the wild ‘Exibit A’, a piece that combines multi-layered rock with The Prodigy-like elements. The strong contrast follows right after ‘Exhibit A’. ‘Fathom’ is a calm and cinematic song, driven by a hypnotic rhythm. Although the expression differs the complexity remains.
If you like multi-layered progressive rock you will like ‘Others’. Artistic freedom is in the foreground of ‘Others’, which makes the album interesting, but also demands time and attention from the listener.
