Before joining forces to become a duo, Kevin Frias and Angela Cook were merely classmates seeking to musically co-conspire. They met in Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School’s singer-songwriter development class, and became friends through a shared love of the creative process. After splitting ways in college and eventually reuniting to collaborate--they realized their strengths in creating music long term.
GRXDNT draws from strong influences such as Massive Attack, Billie Holiday, and BANKS to make a healthful blend of “artisanal experimental soul”. With Kevin’s dreamy guitar riffs and seamless production to Angela’s vulnerable lyrically lush vocals, their collaborative songwriting process delivers an honest depiction of one’s internal process when in question about love.
The duo never fears exploring the vulnerable, uncharted waters of human connection. Their Dark Matter EP focuses on duality that exists within relationships and the often unexpressed sentiments that couple them. This release provides a musical landscape that lures listeners into feeling the ominous grey area when attached to a significant other.
