Los Angeles’ FROTH are pleased to announce they have signed to Wichita Recordings and will release their third album Outside (briefly) on February 10, 2017. The band has shared the video for first single “Contact”, watch the Riley Blakeway-directed clip here-
“I feel like the video does a good job representing the inspiration of the song through a desperate space obsessed man,” says singer/guitarist JooJoo Ashworth of the video. “Riley and I work pretty easy together since we’ve collaborated several times before and have a lot of overlapping taste so making the video was really fun for me.”
On the Thomas Dolas-produced Outside (briefly), FROTH have dialed back the noise of their previous albums to reveal delicately beautiful melodies, intricately arranged instrumentals and some of their most experimental songwriting to date. Formed in 2013 in Los Angeles, the band first garnered attention with their debut LP, Patterns. Originally intended as a small-run cassette release, the album quickly became an underground sensation in the Southern California music scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014.
2015 saw the release of the band’s sophomore album, Bleak. A more dynamic, adventurous effort, the record matches lush shoegaze soundscapes with driving krautrock beats, and earned the band press attention from outlets including NPR Music, Noisey, Vogue.com, and Stereogum, among others. FROTH toured extensively across the U.S. and Europe in support of the album, opening for acts such as The Drums, Tamaryn, Pond and Craft Spells.
FROTH is: JooJoo Ashworth (guitar/vocals), Cameron Allen (drums), Jeremy Katz (bass), and Nick Ventura (guitar).
