The story of The Frontier Brother’s recent history begins with an informal songwriting panel moderated by legendary DJ Matt Pinfield at the 2010 CMJ Festival. An unreleased preview to a planned 2011 LP, You Should Start a Band caught Pinfield’s ear, leading to the single’s debut on NYC’s 101.9 RXP. The Austin trio’s waggish, irreverent pop gem subsequently spent five weeks on specialty radio charts, garnering attention from tastemakers like The Next Big Thing’s Andy Langer (101X Austin) and KCRW’s Anne Litt. Hailed as much for their “blessedly unstudied weirdness” (The Onion) as their “satirist's sense of wit, towering hooks and winning melodies,” (Austin American Statesman) The Frontier Brothers truly shine in a live setting. From Austin to New York, the trio has spent the past year honing their gleefully exuberant performances before capacity crowds at the Bowery Ballroom, The Mohawk, Music Hall of Williamsburg, and Antone’s. Offstage, The Frontier Brothers are defined by the contradiction between the lively and provocative narrative style of lyricist Marshall Galactic, the lyrical pop drumming of Travis Newman, and piano wunderkind Brett Moses’ endless hooks. With songs that are at once catchy and artfully challenging, The Frontier Brothers have composed a fascinating sonic landscape for the strong, the sensitive, and the bold.
