Eric Frisch makes alluring warm retro music that takes listeners under water and submerges them in a dream. His new album, Music Under Sea, is a fuzzy pop throwback to the ‘60s wall of sound. Calling to mind the drenched pianos of A Day in the Life by the Beatles and She’s A Rainbow by the Rolling Stones, Frisch explores heartbreak, moving forward and growing up in the 10-track EP.
“I drew a lot of inspiration from bands like Real Estate, Foxygen, and Best Coast, while of course staying true to my Beatles and Beach Boys roots. Nothing I can do about that. I was reading a poem by T.S. Eliot and it had the phrase 'Defunctive Music Under Sea' in it, and I really like the idea of 'Music Under Sea.' To me, the album has an underwater feel to it, almost like it was recorded under water, and so the name Music Under Sea seemed perfect to me.”
