Hip enough for hipsters but nerdy enough for nerds, Freezepop are back with a new batch of songs that you won''t be able to get out of your head. Their second full-length album, Fancy Ultra*Fresh, builds upon the minimal electropop of their past releases, with an edgier, fuller sound. With songs ranging from the aggressively dancey "Parlez-Vous Freezepop?" to the hushed "Outer Space," to the cheeky and blippy "Stakeout," Freezepop have introduced new sonic elements to their repertoire, while remaining true to their catchy synthpop roots. Fancy Ultra*Fresh was released by the Archenemy Record Company in May 2004.
Formed in 1999, Freezepop is the union of Liz Enthusiasm (vocalist/fashion plate), the Duke of Pannekoeken (programmer extraordinaire), and the Other Sean T. Drinkwater (synths/vocoder/wacky hijinks). All the Freezepop songs are programmed on a Yamaha QY-70, a handheld battery-powered sequencer. Their debut album, Freezepop Forever, was released domestically by Archenemy in 2001, and was licensed for worldwide release by Elefant, a Spanish indiepop label. The band have also released several EPs of new material as well as remixes by the Future Bible Heroes, Soviet, Stephan Groth (Apop/Fairlight Children), and more. Freezepop have songs featured in four Sony PlayStation2 video games, including Karaoke Revolution, Frequency, and Amplitude. They have performed throughout the U.S. and Europe, and have played at the Outsider Electronic Festival, as well as with such artists as Cibo Matto, Add N to (X), and Momus.
