LA-based Froth (whose 2015 release, Bleak, we drooled over at length) is back! The ink drying on their new deal with esteemed Wichita Recordings, the band have announced a new album, Outside (briefly) (check the Saville-esque artwork, above), and shared the video (courtesy of the good folks over at The Line of Best Fit) for new track, “Contact”.
“Contact” is, at first, a bit of a departure from the more raucous swirl and burn found throughout much of Bleak. It’s more downtempo – low-end synth burbles loom over a steady, robotic drum beat, creating a heady, detached psych feel. After that ominous beginning, though, the fog gradually lifts at around the 3:45 mark, revealing an absolute rapture.
Wichita Records will release Outside (briefly) on February 17 – it’s available for preorder here. Froth can be found on the fbook, and you can make contact (sorry) with their earlier work on Bandcamp. The band also have some tour dates coming up (more are listed in their page feed) – here’s hoping for more when the album drops.
