In 2007 four young musicians found common ground though they had different musical socialization. Julian Cassel (guitar), Tommi Holtgreve (drums), Andi Weizel (bass) und Alina Süggeler (vocal) formed a band and found their music genre – something between conservatory and punk: Pop – extrovert and truly.
About the band
"Frida" is called a song from Alex Bosse and then they added “Gold” to their name because of the convenient associations like warm, brightly, significant and not copyable. Andi: We´ve wanted an international sound, hypnotic beats and emotions. So you can release energy through loud guitar riffs or through grooves and repetition.
And it was clear to us that we have to focus on the only constant – Alina´s voice! And we have to emphasize it.
But not only her voice is special, Alina herself is it. She’s a modern diva. There was an apt quotation from „The Zoo Magazine“: “extravagant and grounded; sexy and one of the boys; singer and model; small town girl and cosmopolitan diva – The golden girl of german pop music.“
So it´s no wonder that Alina works as model for Chanel and Diesel Black Gold. Moreover she sat as a juror in the TV Show „Our star for Baku“ next to Stefan Raab and Thomas D.
