Confirmed piri & tommy announce debut project ‘froge.mp3’

The twelve-track project will includes recent singles ‘on & on’ and ‘words’.

Buzzy Manchester duo piri & tommy have announced plans to release this debut project ‘froge.mp3’ next month.

The pair will release their twelve-track project on 21st October via Polydor, and it will feature previous singles such as ‘on & on’ and ‘words’.

Speaking of ‘froge.mp3’, piri has said it “is basically a diary of the first year tommy and I have been making music, and pretty much the first year of us knowing each other at all. Each song (in both lyrics and vibe) captures a different point in time of our journey, and the different experiences and emotions we were going through. We really wanted to avoid guiding or limiting ourselves too much during the creative process: we made whatever we felt like, just for fun, and I can definitely feel that energy of us enjoying being creative and with no pressure when listening back. It’s so cool having a collection of tracks to document parts of our lives in that way, like a little time capsule.”

Going further, tommy explains: “Every single track was an experiment. This was the first time I’ve been entirely responsible for producing an entire record, it’s been super fun to make and I’ve learned so much about producing just by doing this. Every track had a different challenge and I’m proud that all of them have individuality, through different genres, instrumentations, writing styles and production techniques. I just want everyone to enjoy this project: we poured our hearts and souls into these songs, roll on project 2!!!”

The tracklisting is as follows.

1. ‘silver lining’
2. ‘on & on’
3. ‘soft spot’
4. ‘settle’
5. ‘words’
6. ‘slowly but surely’
7. ‘say it’
8. ‘can we’
