Front Country is a band on the precipice of a metamorphosis. As multi-instrumentalists, songwriters and composers, the instrumentation and setting have always been secondary to the musical vision that comes through no matter what stage they take. For a band with a genre in their name, genre has always been elusive for Front Country, as they refuse to pick sides or be constrained by any expectations outside their own singular aesthetic. From their beginnings in the SF Bay Area to their new hometown of Nashville, TN, Melody Walker, Adam Roszkiewicz and Jacob Groopman have been on a journey to discover a sound.
While making their third album – their first in Music City – they feel closer than ever to what fans have heard in them all along. SLC Weekly called it “Rugged Americana and Purposeful Pop” and that seems as close as anything to describe the Front Country sound. To them, their namesake is about pushing the envelope, but never losing sight of their roots.
Their new visuals for “Broken Record” “is both a pop song and a protest song. It is about not being heard – either in the halls of power or in a relationship – but nevertheless, speaking up again and again until you are finally understood. There is so little communication making it across the divide these days, but listening is the beginning of empathy and when it comes to human rights, none of us should stay silent.” confides singer Melody.
Melody continues, “In case the message wasn’t clear enough through the dance party, the music video for ‘Broken Record’ adds greater context, pushing voter registration via HeadCount and honoring a legacy of protest and hard-won civil rights.”
Front Country have garnered acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone and NPR, to name a couple.
