The ‘Lunar Eclipse EP’ is the newest blood child of musical organism FRANGIE, the Stockholm collective of three friends Adriana, Francisco and Fredrik. The trio combine their own languid twist of Scandi disco and funk that saw their debut self-titled EP ‘Frangie’ find its way pulsating through Swedish National Radio and beyond, played by French music connoisseur Delicieuse Musique, spun by Nemone on the BBC Radio Electric Ladyland show, as well as a premier of "Don't text me" on XLR8R.
A record modeled off the sighting of a lunar eclipse, the repeated mantra "the sun, earth and moon aligned", became “a collective blessing, a bittersweet connection, giving our session a timeless memory...” Dripping with effortless groove and summer nostalgia, the four-tracker contains an essential spark of connectivity felt when they planted the seed for the songs one summer night. Opener ‘Lunar Eclipse’ revels in unstoppable funk with soul-soaked vocals. Next is the warm ‘Antumbra’ which is encased in a dreamy funk blanket with all the essential groove ingredients we'd expect from FRANGIE, followed by synth bop ‘Umbra’. Closer is the electro twister ‘The Fear’ featuring remixer act Imaginary Hair, the future forward production trio composed of Johanna Beckman, Johan Staaf and Andreas Aavik, dipping into the neo-psychedelic atop a trippy bass.
Released on the independent Taiga Riviera imprint, which favours a free-flowing approach absent of genre, whilst encapsulating a “Sad and Happy” mood of the magical, mysterious Swedish summers. ‘Lunar Eclipse EP’ stands as an emblem of disco warmth in the deep mid-winter.
