EP Review - Poor Frisco - Ghosts
The opening title track sets the mood of the EP - it’s rhythmic, punchy and straight to the point. The series of succinct lyrics and the sudden ending make it both convincing and well-structured. In the same pattern, Brothers Grimm, is a rather simple, yet, effective song.
Carry On and Change Your Name, are two dark ballads, in fact, do not be fooled by the cheerful rhythm and the sweet voice because, behind them, two tragic stories are hidden. Those two songs perfectly display Poor Frisco's talent to portray emotions.
Riot Police starts slowly and, while listening to it, we are living the sombre short story told by the lyrics. Although it lasts approximatively one minute, it remains loud and sincere.
For all that, Ghosts is a collection of memories, of experiences and feelings, of people who used to mean something.
