"The Bay Area's premier party starters, this trio of spandex-clad ladies bump and grind over hip-hop beats while spewing zany, racy rhymes like 'When I was sixteen/Lost my cherry to a boy named Barry/Shot me with his gun like Dirty Harry.'" --Details
The Frail has already been featured on MTV, won the viewer’s choice award in Owl Magazine’s “Video Makes The Radio Star” contest, and played alongside the likes of Justice, Moby and Goldfrapp.
Over the past four years, velvet-throated vocalist Daniel Lannon and hyper-prolific producer Kevin Durr have pushed the group from a Craigslist collaboration to a stage-shattering electro-pop act worthy of national acclaim. Pop-indie hybrids, the group’s electro-tinged cuts now toe the line between falsetto homage to Michael Jackson and the hyper-literate electro experimentation of DFA acts like LCD Soundsystem.
The addition of guitarist Rob Pera and bassist Izzy Chavarin offers yet another layer of depth, cementing the group's shift from simple, party rousing dance tunes to profound pop steeped in indie intelligence.
"The Frail make a dirty sort of electro-fun that's a perfect soundtrack for both dance parties and illegal activities. Ideally: illegal dance parties." --Flavorpill
