The Frictions - Torch

The Frictions have just released a new album called Torch, continuing the direction of their debut Halogen Sky, but this time around sounding even more layered and concise. Torch’s own “Cosmic America” poetics works seamlessly and without the slightest strain, enhanced with the tint of electrified minimalistic postpunk.
Under the thundering guitars the members of The Frictions subtly laid repetitive, rolling (neo)psychedelic nuances, and rewarded their listeners with a dash of Sahel blues at the end of the album.
The band holds a distinctive, elaborate and balanced sound panorama, bows to a collective spirit and camaraderie with no member forcing himself into the foreground. Songs were recorded without excessive interferences and production kitsch. Sonic atmosphere is plain and unpretentious, radiating organic, relaxing vibe.
