Beach Sloth says: "With a decadent summer-themed jam followed by a stark minimal synthesizer workout, FREON does everything. The element that holds the two pieces together are the vocals of Francesca Amati, who manages to give the entire collection a theme of sorts. Lyrically both pieces manage to contain a sense of narrative and charm.

As FREON’s first release it shows a world akin to the many side projects that bore it. By adding a human element into the proceedings it shows itself to be quite a compelling listen." - beachsloth.blogspot.com

Track Name: On the Beach
The girl just stood there
As the summer rain began to fall
Sweetness in the rising air
Drawing all her breath
Sickness on her rising chest made me heave
And I just looked as she cried (on the beach)

Why won't you come with me
I wait at the place where
The night lives, where the air drives
Why won't you come with me?
Sun traces shadows
Of wave-hands upon the lea

But I gave into the taste in my mouth
Turned my throat to the sky
And looking back eastways saw her standing there
Dark eyes and brooding
Like fishes holding the tide
And I moved as she smiled (on the beach)

Oh will you come with me
At the place where the air drives
Where the night lives
Oh will you come with me
Listless we're no place
Drops on the harbor quay

On the beach...
On the beach...
On the beach...
