Line Up

Firefriend's story There was a thread in American music in the late 1960s that someone untangled across the U.S., then stretched over to Europe, where it took root in 80s shoegaze. It ties together but bands as disparate as the 13th Floor Elevators, the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, Mazzy Star, Blonde Redhead, and the Jesus & Mary Chain.

Influenced by The Velvet Underground, Black Sabbath, Spiritualized and John Coltrane. The sound of these bands is fused in Firefriend's music. It’s noise rock or math punk or psychedelic or shoegaze or doom: It’s the down-tuned sound of chaos and beauty, and while no one was looking, it also worked its way through the Americas and took root in Brazil under the name Firefriend.

Having performed in Urban Spree - Berlin (D) and at Fuzz Club's 2019 festival in Het Stroomhuis and the Effenaar in Eindhoven (NL) last summer, Firefriend's fans were calling to come back soon.

Frankie Teardrop Dead’s influences are a lot like their band members, plucked from different time periods and gathered from all over the world, spliced together in a melting pot of reverb, delay and vintage tambourines.

In the two years the band has been together, they’ve written and recorded their first album “Better than some, worse than others”, gigged many venues in the fair city of London, exchanged a few band members, and brought good vibes and sweet music to the earholes of anyone who cared to listen.

Responsible for these soul-soothing sounds reminiscent of Brian Jonestown Massacre and John Lennon are lead singer and rhythm guitarist Ben Jimenez, who along with backing vocalist and percussionist Carling Vail remain the founding members of the group. Providing the ethereal psychedelic lead lines is lead guitarist Sofiane Flamant, with the groovy backbone of the band coming from bassist Ben Stevens and many drummers

With a second album in the works and their individual brand of psychedelic shoe gaze gaining them more fans by the day, Frankie Teardrop Dead are set to continue their journey into the infra-sounds.
