Frazier Chorus were an English pop group from Brighton, England. A pop group without the usual guitarist, bassist or drummer; they instead utilised flute, clarinet, bongos and hushed vocals (though some tracks do include guitar).
Originally a four-piece, they signed to British indie record label 4AD, and released the single "Sloppy Heart" in 1987. Shortly afterwards they moved to Virgin Records, and achieved reasonable chart success with a string of melodic pop songs about Dream Kitchens, Living Rooms, Happy Eaters and Little Chefs, all taken from their 1989 debut album, Sue.
With the emergence of the indie-dance scene in the early 1990s the band changed tack. Singles from their second album Ray were remixed into indie-dance floorfillers by a number of top remixers, including Paul Oakenfold, Chad Jackson and Youth.
Singer Tim Freeman released a third album billed as Frazier Chorus (Wide Awake), which did not reach the UK Albums Chart, although it was released years after Ray on a small independent record label, while Kate Holmes moved into electronica via the bands Sirenes, Technique, and Client.
Tim Freeman is the brother of actor Martin Freeman.
