Electronic duo Frett gear up for Latitude with mesmerizing new single
‘Drop Of Starch’

“ UK duo Frett weave soft muffled vocals through a minimal but emotional soundscape of laid-back pounding bass and swirling guitar. Hit play and drift away”  – i-D Magazine

“Frett are Mesmerizing, an atmospheric playground of driving synths, pulsating bass, hypnotic guitar lines, and solid percussion”Indie Shuffle

“James Blake-esque vocals that pack a punch!”Wonderland Magazine

Starch 

1.1, noun – A substance used to create a state of stiffness in fabrics 
1.2, adjective – Stiffness or formality, as of manner

Drop of Starch was born out of red wine, late night scribblings and musical jottings of various riffs layered up on a loop pedal. The sense of minimalism in Drop of Starch is something that Frett have become more and more interested in, and this track epitomises this sense of layering. The start of the track is recorded almost exactly as it was written; starting with the little synth sequence, bringing on a guitar riff and then its counterpart before the bass and synths spring to life.

The strong beat through Drop Of Starch has been picked up through influences the likes of Jai Paul, The Acid and Bonobo. Having covered ‘Drop The Game’ for some time now in their live shows, the musical importance of Flume and Chet Faker is also evident.

The Suffolk based pair have been producing exciting electronic infused indie for the past year. Masterfully weaving lyrics evoking the harsh banality of urban life into pleasurable sonic explosions and with an unrivalled passion and voracious appetite for all kinds of music. Frett continuously experiment with new sounds; recording, mixing and mastering all the music they have released to date.
Their last single, Tyro, garnered them a premiere on i-D Magazine and with support from BBC Introducing, 6 Music, XFM and Kerrang!, they’ve now been chosen to play Latitude Festival 2015.

Catch Frett performing at:
Latitude Festival [Lake Stage] – 18th July
