Fronteers are an indie rock band from Hull made up of Andy Towse (vocals/guitar), James Taylor (vocals/guitar), Ellis Keogh (bass), and Lloyd Tuton (drums). When I first heard their track Youth, I was immediately grabbed by their intoxicating and focused sound. I simply couldn’t get enough of this band and thought to myself, “this is definitely one of those bands that will be playing stadiums within a few years.” They’ve recently been hearing loads of wonderful things about their music, even NME had to say something about the upcoming band..
“Alongside the playful, Gallagher-esque lyrics there’s a hint of Alex Turner’s pre-LA drawl about Andy Towse’s vocals and a scratchy guitar solo half-inched straight from those recent Libertines album sessions.” – NME
Idol is the title of their most recent track that is inviting, catchy, and filled with psychedelic hints. I’ve had it on repeat since it first came out, and it seems to get better and better with each listen. The music video is of them performing the song and even has some humorous parts in it that shows a different side to the polished band. The track was first played by Steve Lamacq at 6Music and then was played by Huw Stephens at Radio 1 and also played from Phil Clifton and John Kennedy at Radio X. They will be on tour starting February eleventh at their first London gig, check out the full list of tour dates below.
