Karin Park – Fryngies
State of the Eye Recordings
5th March 2012
Following the release of her UK debut last September, the critically acclaimed ‘Tiger Dreams EP’, Sweden’s Karin Park returns with ‘Fryngies’ the first single off her forthcoming album ‘High Wire Poetry’.
Hailed as one of the most original new voices out there with ‘Fryngies‘ Karin artfully marries her unique vocals, at once both powerfully strong and yet so delicately fragile, to a soundtrack of icy electronics, sparse dubstep influenced beats and rattling, haunted percussion.
Working with acclaimed producer Christoffer Berg (Fever Ray/The Knife/ Little Dragon), and State of the Eye’s Barry Barnett, the result is truly leftfield electronic pop music that builds and builds, step by step, to a taut emotional climax.
As with ‘Tiger Dreams’ Karin has again hand picked some of the most exciting and respected producers around to re-tool ‘Fryngies’ for the dancefloor, and first up is dubstep phenomenon Funtcase, whose hair-raising remix has already found favour with Radio 1’s Zane Lowe who premiered the track on his show in December and has been viewed on YouTube more than 600,000 times.
Taking things in another direction entirely Portuguese rising star Moullinex flips the script entirely, dropping a refreshingly bright and upbeat house mix that is already being strongly supported by the likes of Dimitri from Paris and Mighty Mouse.
