Frau – “Orca”

ssr023artweb

If you don’t know of Frau, they are an underground punk outfit from Brighton, UK. Their style is short and powerful blasts of punk rock devastation.

Ash Tray, the vocalist, sounds like an ashtray. She sounds like someone trying to spit out an ashtray. She sings the word ‘orca!’ (a kind of killer whale) repeatedly along with the phrase “I belong in the deep….I belong in the deep”. She is inside the killer whale’s head!

An infectious riff, a crash cymbal-heavy chorus, a throbbing bassline, and a demented performer exorcising deep-sea-level demons. Clocking at two minutes, it is the longest track this band has recorded so far. I guess they have a lot on their mind. The B-side to an already b-side sounding A-side. Can you get more underground, than underground? Apparently yeah, if you “belong in the deep”.

“I belong in the deep….I belong in the deep”
