Layered synths blend with crystalline guitar work and the lofty voice of Kelly O' Brien, resulting in a 70-minute, melancholy journey that flows from ebbing to epical. Frolic have a track on Projekt's Seireenia Cd; they are one of the best, new female ethereal bands we've heard!

If you're strange like me, you rather like the winter and kind of get depressed when the first signs of spring show up. Its the first signs of the impending horrible, miserable heat of the summer. Here in Atlanta, the sidewalks boil. My roommate and I would sometimes listen to Christmas music in mid-July just to try to trick ourselves into feeling cooler. Now I have something much better - I have Perma Frost by Frolic to look forward to.
Imagine if you will the magical land of Narnia when you were a kid from *The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.* Remember how it was all covered in sparkling snow when the children first set off ? Or even better... the icy realms of the *The Ice Queen*? Take that magic and put it to music and you have this incredible CD.
With the siren-like, beautifully haunting vocals on "Seraphim Magnara," Frolic sets the stage for an atmospheric voyage through the land of winter. Enchanting bell tones on "Tonite" whisk you off into a fairytale world covered in purple and blue where anything can happen while the song "Terrain" comes alive with a persistent heartbeat echoing in the background like a slow-motion snow-flake filled dream.
All 13 tracks are equally beautiful and pensive. Kelly's delicate vocals soothe and captivate while the music succeeds in a peaceful trance. Fans of Black Tape for a Blue Girl or Lycia will adore this CD and you'd better bet I'll be lounging about in this dream world of frosty air this summer when the rest of Atlanta is sweating.
