Eilis Frawley releases debut EP Never Too Emotional
Out digitally via Reckless Yes – released 7th February 2020
Quite unlike anything you’ve yet heard ‘Never Too Emotional’’ is the debut EP from Berlin-based Eilis Frawley (Party Fears, I Drew Blank). A solo drummer and percussionist Frawley layers her Krautrock-precision rhythms with spoken word vocals for a release which is at once avante-garde yet resonates deeply with experiences of modern life.
Speaking about the release Frawley said: “The seeds of ‘Never Too Emotional’ were planted in late 2018, out of the desire to create a project with drums at the focal point paired with spoken word, synths and samples. ‘Never Too Emotional’ touches on topics of social structures, feminism, mental health, creative insecurities, personal tragedies, and the psychological impacts of living abroad. Playing drums in multiple bands over the past eight years has been, and continues to be, a source of inspiration for my solo work. The contrast allows me to challenge the role of a solo musician and to embrace the endless and unexpected possibilities of creating alone. ”
Classically trained and playing in bands wherever she’s settled in the world Frawley may have bags of experience but has only been creating as a solo artist since August 2018. A fast worker ideas went to recordings to record label Reckless Yes in just a year and debut single ‘illusions’ was released last Autumn followed by ‘strangers’ and final single ‘intellectual men’ will lead into the EP.
Released 7th February via Reckless Yes Records and out now, this EP is the perfect immersive musical journey. ‘Never Too Emotional’ captivates all within all 4 tracks, a thought-provoking, intellectually intricate and truly obscure record, driving instrumental compliments the lustrous lyrics.
