Listen to the powerful & down-tempo new single from Frythm
Tuesday 4th July 2017 | Lilly
Hailing from El Paso, Texas, Matthew Pena aka Frythm hated the piano lessons as a child. Years after he quit, his love for music was rekindled by an encounter with a MIDI keyboard and a DAW. A new, self-motivated approach was born, and he started producing a unique blend of ambient electronic and warped hypnotising beats at the age of 17.
Frythm began gaining credit as a live performer thereafter, presenting his live instrumental shows on electric guitar, keyboard and live drumming. In early 2016, he joined the Los Angeles-based collective SoulfulxNature, who released the tracks 'Too Much' and 'Your Love'.
Drawing influences from Flume, Pascaal, Cashmere Cat, Flying Lotus and Odesza, Frythm latest single 'There For You ft. AVNDR', is a melodic, bass heavy piece with a lazy rhythm mixed into its electronic sound. The underlying beat still remains the star amid the charming softness of AVNDR's vocals, with an uplifting tone surrounding the soulful vocal sample.
Of the collaboration with AVNDR, Frythm says, “I remember looking through SoundCloud one and stumbling across AVNDR, the name looked catchy so I decided to listen to his music and I was in awe. Before the collaboration even started I was a fan of his music which made this track that much more special. We've had There For You for close to 7 months now and decided that this was finally the perfect time to show the world.”
'There For You ft. AVNDR' comes out on the 14th July but you can already stream it below:
