Frog Set To Release New Album “Count Bateman” August 16th Via Audio Antihero + Tape Wormies
Listen To New Single “It’s Something I Do”
Count Bateman is the forthcoming fourth release from Frog, the acclaimed cult Wyrd-Americana Indie band from Queens, NYC. Their music has found over one million streams on Spotify, they’ve received support from the BBC, GoldFlakePaint, NPR Music, DIY Mag, CLASH, TLOBF, The Skinny, London in Stereo, The Alternative, The Grey Estates, Various Small Flames and many more.
On their latest eclectic and emotional outing, there’s hints of the Carole King’s ‘70s pop, Jonathan Richman’s earnest eccentricity, Ned Doheny’s white boy funk, Greg Dulli’s lust, the Meat Puppets’ bastardized Americana and the wild wit and narrow self-control of The Silver Jews.
Count Bateman will be co-released August 16th by Audio Antihero and Frog founder Danny Bateman’s fledgling Tape Wormies imprint (which he describes as “a hippie commune label, seeking to make its artists co-owners/profit sharers so that everyone will help each other succeed”).
Ahead of the release the band have just unveiled new single “It’s Something I Do” – an incredible insight into the powerful record about to be released into the world. The single features highly uplifting vocals and overall deliverance- a melodic and heartfelt progression from the get-go. A soothing yet complex single from the band one which just resonates nostalgia. Discordant guitar strumming and harmonious vocals showcase the intelligent songwriting, addictive melody and robust song structure.
Count Bateman will become the summer record you need for the rest of time. Essential and sentimental. A classic already.
