Young Londoner frYars will continue his steady rise into the public consciousness with a new EP to arrive in the midst of a spring/summer tour schedule.
The Perdify EP will be released through frYar Corp/Make Mine Records on the 17th of March and is 19-year-old Ben Garrett’s follow-up to last year’s The Ides EP. Here’s what’s on it:
‘The Novelist's Wife’
Production on those came from known-ofs; the Bees' Paul Butler helping out on the middle two tracks while Luke Smith, formerly of Clor, returns after working on The Ides EP to twiddle on ‘Olive Eyes’ and ‘Benedict Remixed’.
Now, those tour dates - some of which, DiS has just learnt, see frYars lending support to Goldfrapp:
