Craig Almquist, the leader and constant force behind the Philadelphia-based band Cold Fronts, has mastered the art of “whatever.” And not in the typical, snarky, post-millennial “who cares” sense—when Almquist uses the “W” word, it’s a badge of honor, a trophy for a guy who can roll with the punches like the best of them—anyplace, anytime, and for eternity.
“Forever Whatever is the title of the record, and it’s got that vibe of ‘I’m gonna go for my dreams, I’m gonna try and do exactly what I want to do, I’m not gonna let the real world get in the way of my goals,’” he says. “Something about that phrase had that perfect, ‘Fuck it, I’m gonna do what I want to do’ vibe.”
Buschleague is the first single off the debut LP, which will release on October 23rd via Sire Records. Have a listen below:
