Frost is the second of twin records: Moxie & Frost. Where Moxie was the ‘hooker with the heart of gold’, Frost is decidedly the sweetheart you fall in love with the moment you meet. From the bellyfullofbutterflies of a first kiss in Night We Fell In Love to the sweet ache of long distance in I Still Want You and Five Points to the silly honesty that comes of being together through thick and thin in The Book of Love (written by Stephin Merritt of Magnetic Fields) and Smile At Perfect Strangers, this record tells the other side of the story: In each of us is the capacity for sublime love, just as in each of us lives the desire for freefall into our own darkness.
Made by the same stellar team the produced Moxie and a cast of great session players from the vibrant Connecticut music scene, Frost incorporates both the acoustic roots sounds of Daphne’s Appalachian youth, as well as the hi-fi electronic sounds that her live band brings to the stage at night, setting it apart from the antiqued sounds of Moxie.
Frost is accompanied by a unique photographic art book developed by Daphne with artist Pola Esther that explores women throughout history who have battled and embraced their ability to love and their sexuality in relation to their art and self expression surrounding the characters and myths on Moxie & Frost.
