Our Introducing interviews chat to artists in an effort to give an introduction to their work, music and creative vision. As an outlet for them to get across the motivations and passions behind their music and art, the Q&A nature of this section gives the artist free reign to invite the curious into their world to discover what makes them tick; musically and sometimes personally too.

Introducing: The Frixion

The Frixion make electropop with a twist, taking inspiration from a wide range of sources, be they 80s synthpop, gothic electro, or the driving motoric sounds of Kraftwerk. It’s given a layer of sophistication via Gene Serene’s vocals and Lloyd Price’s skill at assembling stirring yet at times sparse electronica. Imagine Kylie embracing her dark side and working with Gary Numan and you are part of the way to understanding The Frixion’s sound. We spoke to the band to find out more about the madness and motivation behind their music.

Introducing: PEAKES

PEAKES are Molly Puckering (vocals), Maxwell Shirley (keyboards) and Pete Redshaw (drums). Formed whilst the three were studying in Leeds, since graduating from university they’ve been working solidly on their music; developing what they describe as an ‘atmospheric pop’ sound.
