About this Event

About this Event

FRIGS

Desert Liminal

----------

FRIGS is a Toronto-based band that pairs the raw, emotional grunge of PJ Harvey with the immersive, psychedelic post-punk of early Sonic Youth. With each member bringing a unique set of influences, FRIGS creates a sound that is hard to pin down and an impression that’s unshakable. 

Led by the force of Bria Salmena’s vocals, the band has earned a reputation for putting on an hypnotic and visceral live performance. Embracing the mercurial and experimental, their shows are built upon instinct; a vocal growl can unexpectedly give way to a hushed whisper; languid drones boil over into guttural and searing tones. 

THE HECKS are a rock ensemble set on reviving short-form songs with heterophonic jabs from their busted, misstrung guitar collection. Their enduring interest is in the manipulation of form-based musical tropes, which yields succinct but engaging bursts of sculpted pentatonic structure, sleek and textured instrumental passages, or atonal rhythmic nonsense.

DESERT LIMINAL is a genre-evasive minimalist duo centered by Sarah Jane Quillin's (Heavy Dreams, Pantyhose) spectral vocal melodies layered over low-end vintage synth, ambient samples and driving drum grooves. Thoughtful lyrical tone and instrumental texture combine to achieve a dark, atmospheric synergy focused on liminal, threshold states - grief, dissociation, retrospection and the experience of nonlinear time. Static Thick was released in October 2017.
