Eric Frisch – “As Long As I’m Alive” 

d a number of Eric Frisch tracks in the past, the NYC-based singer/songwriter’s newest entry “As Long As I’m Alive” continues his familiar, piano-driven pop sensibilities. This particular effort reminds fondly of Matthew Sweet, and his similar affinity for vintage pop music that recalls a ’60s Wall of Sound. “I drew a lot of inspiration from bands like Real Estate, Foxygen, and Best Coast, while of course still staying true to my Beatles and Beach Boys roots. Nothing I can do about that,” explains Frisch. The track comes via his newest album Late in the Night, released on May 31st. Leading into a chorus with sporadic guitar twangs and soaring vocals, “As Long As I’m Alive” is another fine entry from Frisch.
