New Music: Fröst - Record Still Spinning

Imagine, if you will, pop purveyors Saint Etienne getting in a studio with Anglo-French band Stereolab. The end result, Record Still Spinning, could well be the result. Although in this case the song was created by by Brighton’s Fröst. It's a gorgeous piece full of propulsive, motorik beats combined with the lovely languid vocals of Johanna Bramli and it comes from the same place as another Brighton band of old; Electrelane. There's even a hint of the wonderful Broadcast in there as well. Basically it's pretty special.

Record Still Spinning is one of those odd songs that whilst sounding slightly downbeat and introspective still manages to produce a feeling of joy and hazy delirium. There’s lots of superlatives I could throw at this one, but let’s just go with the fact that this is a sublime, dreamy, enchanting, ghostly piece of art pop that you can totally lose yourself in.

Record Still Spinning is taken from Fröst’s debut album Matters which is due for release later this year. Fröst is the aforementioned Bramli and Steve Lewis, who also plays with Fujiya & Miyagi and the band have already been picked up by the likes of Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1), Nemone, Gideon Coe and Lauren Laverne  (BBC 6 Music) and John Kennedy (Radio X).
