For a duo who only started working together a short time ago, The Frixion are receiving a lot of attention from music fans and tastemakers alike.
British born, London/Berlin based singer songwriter Gene Serene started putting her brand of electronic pop out in the late 90’s. The 00’s saw the birth of her nom de plume “Gene Serene” whilst co-writing with Bill Borez and Barry Ashworth, Genie found herself propelled and embraced by the “electro-pop/clash” scene. Those years saw her writing songs and performing with such diverse artists as Traumschmeire (Shit Katapault), S’Express (Kitsune), Chris Lake (Nervous), Sycophant Slags (End Recordings) and Calvertron, taking her performing everywhere from New York to Tallin and in between. She released her debut solo album ‘The Polaris Experience’ in 2015.
UK based synthesist and producer Lloyd Price is best known as a collaborator of Sigue Sigue Sputnik’s Martin Degville and an ex-member of the dark electro combo Massive Ego.
Genie and Lloyd came across one another on social media, both devastated at the news of their hero Prince passing had begun posting their favorite videos online. Lloyd had heard Gene Serene’s previous work and sent over a demo track which became their first single “From Dusk ‘til Dawn”. The rest, as they say, is history.
The band have so far released a self-titled EP and an accompanying remix suite of the lead track ‘If U Ever Wonder’. The EP featured 4 original tracks and a cover version of Prince’s ‘Under the Cherry Moon’. These self-released EPs were extremely well received by radio across the globe and appeared in the end of year top listings of many radio stations and online blogs/websites.
In late 2017 the band released a cover of the Howard Jones classic ‘What is Love’. Again the band received extremely positive feedback and even a virtual nod from Howard himself in the form of likes and retweets on Twitter.
With the first EPs and single under their belts, the band are now locked in the studio writing and recording their first album. The Frixion are thrilled to join forces with the AnalogueTrash record label for the release of that album in the summer of 2018.
The band are looking forward to more shows throughout 2018 and are now talking with promoters and festivals for performance dates in the latter half of 2018 and 2019.
