about

"Whether dropping from the heavens or conjured from the depths of hell, Frayle‘s The White Witch EP, seemed to materialize out of thin air. Minimalistic in form, it pulses and drones, shimmers and beguiles, propelled by tribal rhythms and hypnotic pacing. The White Witch’s magic is potent, deriving its power from the subtle, vulnerable delivery of the vocals. Take heed, Frayle cast a spell that’s not easily broken."

"There are a lot of thrilling musical achievements here just as there are elements of the mystical and weird decorating the album. I'm curious to see how the band grows - with a full length there sound can really expand and be properly explored. As is, these choruses are invigorating and deliciously well done. It's definitely worth digging in."

"It takes a leisurely pace on a desolate path and the outcome is so satisfying."

"They play a very mesmerising doom, which touches upon stoner rock and also has some shoegaze influences, making their EP The White Witch a highly recommended listen.."

Self-released digitally just over 1 month ago, beneath the overcast skies of Cleveland, FRAYLE have been turning a lot of heads with their unique approach to DOOM.

Describing themselves as "Heavy, Low, & Witchy" and claiming to "create music for the night sky", FRAYLE are a female-fronted doom / witch-rock band that draw their inspiration from seminal acts such as Sleep, Portishead, Beastwars, Blonde Redhead, Kyuss, Massive Attack, Down, and Chelsea Wolfe.... FRAYLE exists at the intersection of doom and dream pop.

Gwyn's voice is like a gentle ethereal breeze blanketed by the lunar light of a full moon. It blends all too naturally with the heavy droning guitars and thundering layer created by the drums and bass. To be frank, this release almost sits more comfortably alongside 90's alternate ala My Bloody Valentine than the typical over-verbed out 70's lo-fi doom approach. FRAYLE’s “lullabies over chaos” approach to songwriting allows them the freedom to explore what is possible with heavy music. They strive to balance the heaviest of riffs with the approachability of Gwyn’s haunting vocal melodies.
Complex layering and tone stacking have become a hallmark of their music. Each element is thoughtfully composed resulting in a unique combination of midrange-heavy guitars, syncopated rhythms, and unexpected vocal progressions.
Lyrically, Gwyn weaves stories of heart break, anger, hypocrisy and resolution, asking the audience for empathy, and in turn inspiring vulnerability.

It's quite refreshing to hear a band paving it's own way combining influences that may not immediately come to mind, but work amazingly well together. Don't take it from me, experience FRAYLE for yourself.
