Words: Ellie Ward
LA noise-rock trio Froth head up to the release of their new co-produced with Tomas Dolas (Oh Sees/Mr. Elevator) full-length, 'Duress', this Friday (June 7 on Wichita Recordings), with the drop of beat-driven single '77'.
The anxious, yet also effusive track, moves edgily along three minutes around the lo-fi guest vocals of Izzy Glaudini of Automatic, lending a experimental juxtaposition that is both slightly discordant as it is hypnotically relaxing. Curious and highly listenable.
"I had him play bass and synth while I sung and played some guitar. Only with Tomas would we ever come up with an odd timing song. The lyrics are mostly about when I was living with my parents for a couple months after I got kicked out of my apartment by an evil landlord.”
The band will support the record with a UK tour in September.
