Frogbelly and Symphony is an international band, splitting its time between Sheffield, UK, and Brooklyn, NY. Members Liz and Tom Hanley, Ben Trott, and Ray Rizzo come from a wide variety of musical backgrounds, bringing in a world of influences to their finely executed experimental tunes. The influence of traditional folk music and poetry is evident, but the prog and post-punk vibes can’t be ignored either. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO to mesmerize us with some of their swirling jams, and to chat with Maia about the origins of their complex work.
