Fringe Class EP Release at Backspace 6.28

Fringe Class EP Release at Backspace 6.28

What can we say about Fringe Class and their new EP, Fringe Class Forever? One might liken it to a slab of butter, melting atop a mountain of flapjacks. It’s a curious combination of pulsating beats and sounds with silky vocals woven into the rich tapestry of notes. “Flower Pigeons” was first up on the playlist. Your ears will feel like they’re relaxing in a hot tub with a glass of bubbly. The vocals and keyboards are welcoming and easy to listen to and the overall character of the song is simply fun and wonderfully happy. “Tidal Waves” was a track that I particularly enjoyed with its slower and hypnotic pace and the bass line standing like Atlas, holding the song in the beautifully drawn out lulls. The title track, “Fringe Class Forever” is MTV worthy. Simply a well constructed and catchy song; you can hear elements of funk beneath the veneer of the 80’s. The vocals stood out on this song as well, with an almost disco edge giving the song added character. Fringe Class Forever will definitely be added to my “frequently listened” list. Fringe Class will be having an EP release party at Backspace hosted by PopOtter Entertainment this Friday at 9pm. Look ‘em up on Bandcamp, see ‘em live, tell a friend and pass it on. Sharing is caring. - Cory Huennekens
