Indie-psych duo Hi Frisco's latest single is the wonderfully atmospheric rocker "Headspin." Taken from their forthcoming debut album, Goodbye, Blue Monday, the track also features the lush vocal tones of Charlotte Spiral's, Amy Spencer.
The duo's harmonies intertwine with the methodical instrumentation, with Spencer adding another layer using her exquisite vocals. This is a top-notch track from one of the UK's rising acts. The duo had this to say about the release:
'Headspin' was a song we'd had demo'd for a while but got round to recording it quite late in the album process. In our heads it was supposed to sound like a cross between LCD Soundsystem and the Shirelles but kind of mutated into its own thing, part low slung groove with coldwave synths and part doo wop harmonies and crooner ish lead vocals.
Lyrically it's a love song that was always written to be a duet offering the view of a defiant relationship, struggling against the anxiety and stress of modern life from both perspectives. We spent a while trying to find the right person to match up with the imagined voice in our heads, luckily our friend Alice introduced us to Charlotte Spiral and she more than delivered.
Goodbye, Blue Monday is set for release October 9.
