Mr. Fregoso has been hanging around in the indie rock underground of Berlin for a long time and has been working on this project with the long name for about two years. This small three-song EP shows that you can discover happy pieces between punk, indie and something glamorous with this group.
The opening title track sounds a bit like Dead To Me or something, and it’s a lot of fun. Crooked vocals, self-hating lyrics, tempo and punk guitars, it all puts you in a good mood. It gets a little wilder afterwards with the quasi-glam track «Belarus», where the name of this beautiful country is repeated endlessly in the chorus and one is also reminded of 80s glitter rock. The bouncer “Out of Key” also sounds chaotic and wild, which shakes you up with really appropriately weird indie vocals and quasi-Libertine memories. After that, a nice acoustic piece sung in Spanish is included on my promo copy. Crude but nice.
I hadn’t heard of Fregoso before, but this is a fun thing in every sense. Moody and energetic 10 minutes with sometimes wild singing. Cool!
If you made it this far, here’s wishing you a fantastic weekend! ☀️
