A mesmerizing blend of styles, from hook-laden pop songs to moody, introspective melodies to straight up anthemic rock and roll JAMS, FROSTING offers up a refreshing take on rock music in todays oversaturated world of cookie cutter bands, fledgling indie projects and one trick ponies.
TEXTBOOK (ex Not Rebecca)
Textbook are a band out of time, sounding like they fell through a wormhole conjured in the midst of the mid-90's American alternative scene that embraced the likes of Buffalo Tom and The Lemonheads to come crash-landing into the present with their hooks intact. But, whilst evoking the spirit of yesteryear, they have the charm and songwriting suss to elevate them above being a mere nostalgia trip. With jangling guitar and monster vocal melodies enlivening every chorus, there's a strong late-summer feel to the whole thing that brings a smile and draws you back for more.
THE ASSEMBLY (ex Caviar / Woolworthy)
Dave Suh of Woolworthy and Caviar is leading a new band and they’ve got songs that could urge thousands to jump up and down in unison while thrusting their Bics into the air at Reading Festival
THE DEAD ON (ex members of Woolworthy, The Reputation and Empty Spaces)
Many bands are born from the ashes of previous bands but try to shake their pasts. Well, The Dead On embraces their previous musical lives and set out to shake the rafters instead. The Dead On, formed from Chicago stalwart greats Woolworthy and The Reputation, is on a mission to make great Rock n’ Roll and to make Rock n’ Roll great. Their sound is reminiscent of their previous bands but it is far from retread. The Dead On embody the modern rock n roll sound with big guitar hooks, snotty slash and burn riffs and ultra catchy melodies. Their sound is, well, dead on, spot on, hit the right spot Rock n’ Roll.
