FROTH: Bleak: CD

Nov 02, 2015

Holy shit is this album sugary sweet! I dig blissed-out, sun-drenched power pop/shoegazer and Froth delivers on Bleak. I hear a bit of Omaha’s See Through Dresses in the music, but JooJoo Ashworth’s reverb vocals are warmer than the Dresses. When I say the sound is poppy, though, that doesn’t mean it’s happy. There’s a tinge of sadness in some of the songs, which I appreciate. It’s as though the music didn’t get the message that the lyrics aren’t totally upbeat and the vocals have a bit of remorse in them. Whatever the case, it’s still perfect driving music for that warm sunny day.
