Guiye Frayo is a London-based Argentine indie duo consisting of members Guillermo Martinez Ipucha and Veronica Santillo.[1]

Their music has elements of different styles combining pop, rock, psychedelic, electronica, dance and experimental to create a unique sound.

They not only play conventional instruments (guitars, keyboards and drums) but also theremin, circuit-bent toys and vintage synthesizers among others.

So far, they have released nine EPs, nine singles, and two video-clips. They are currently working in new material.

In 2006 they won the Argentine bands/soloists contest "Vale por un video Clip" for the song "Arcoiris en un ojo",[2] organized by FM La Tribu, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The judge were Tom Lupo (Argentine radio host, poet and psychologist), Guillermo Pintos[3] (Rolling Stone Argentina magazine at the time) and MTV Latin America VJ and Ruth Infarinato, the prize was the filming of a video-clip to the winning song. The video clip was made by Cine Humus,[4] and won Best Video clip at "Festival de Audiovisuales de La Plata"[5]

English actress Emma Kennedy once suggested "Autumn Freaks" as song of the day in her blog.[6]

They performed a live session at Balcony TV- London[7] in August 2009 where they played an unusual toy based set up.

In 2010 "Portrait", "The Walk" and "Funky Monkey" were broadcast on Japan radio Takaoka[8]

The band was introduced by Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6 (BBC Introducing) several times, for the first time in 2008[9] with the song "Vida Minima", then in 2010 with "The Walk", again in 2011 Tom Robinson officially presented "A Magnetic Field Called Love" single release,[10] the video clip to the song was launched the same week. Finally in 2014[11] their song "You and Me" was played on (BBC Introducing).

In 2015 the song "The Way I Like You" from their EP TWILY was featured in the popular video editing app Magisto.

History[edit]

Guiye Frayo was originally a solo project by Guillermo. He had met Veronica in a previous band in which they played together, Guillermo decided to turn his soloist project into a band in 2007. After relocating to London they met Jordan who joined them on drums during 2010, when they recorded "A Magnetic Field called love"[12]
