New Band of the Day: FRYARS
Share This Article:
Not many people have the ability to say that Kanye West has blogged about them, and it to be true. However, somebody with that oh-so-desired power is Benjamin Garrett. Producing music under the name of Fryars, the Londoner describes both himself and his music as ‘Inconsistent, Eclectic, Empathetic’. Since teaching himself to play piano and using good old MySpace to kick-start the distribution of his music, Fryars has since released debut Radio PWR EP, co-written and produced tracks for MIKA and worked closely with Lily Allen. He will open up for Lily on her UK tour later this month to deliver ‘beautiful songs, performed in subtle fashion’ to ‘some bemused punters.’ Following is the release of mighty sixteen track album Power, interestingly a script was written before any tracks ‘(Power is) a concept album. (The songs) are inextricably linked in narrative and universe.’ Regularly referring to Power as a soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist, Fryars favourite film soundtrack is ‘Requiem For A Dying Planet - the Herzog film. (Composer : Ernst Reijseger).’ However, since speaking listentomyfuckingmasterpiece.com has come out of the woodwork. Posting on his Facebook page ‘POWER // FILM // COMING SOON’ linking to a witty, avant garde trailer complete with subtitles ‘But the label are happy, because they can just run off a deluxe edition.’
