The layering of these tracks are sneaky complex and delivered subtlety enough to keep a consistently cool vibe throughout. But make no mistake the execution is dripping with talent, Max's voice being the highlight. It's beautiful. Musicianship aside, the hooks sink deep and the melodies are infectious - these are just really well written songs. Loving this EP.
Honestly one of the best EPs I have ever heard. Every song is amazing and so well written. Exceptionally talented, Max Frost will go far. Do yourself a favor and get this EP; I'm glad I did.
Another fanastic EP from Max Frost. I highly recommend it.
About Max Frost
A musical prodigy turned one-man band, Max Frost is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who has poured his diverse influences into an eclectic, satisfying approach to pop music. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Frost was born in 1993 and began studying the guitar at a local music camp when he was ten years old. Only two years later, Frost had started playing in public, and developed a reputation as a promising blues guitarist. Before hitting his teens, Frost joined a local rock band called Joy Ride and backed young fiddler Ruby Jane Smith; later he became a member of Blues Mafia, a successful Austin blues and soul act, and worked with local roots rock hero Bob Schneider. However, while Frost was playing old-school R&B with Blues Mafia, on his own he began digging into fresher sounds, and found a mentor in Lone Star hip-hop artist Kydd Jones. Through Jones, Frost discovered the potential of electronic recording, and soon learned how to handle all the musical elements himself for a tune. In time, Frost was writing and recording songs that incorporated elements of contemporary R&B, classic soul, funk, and hip-hop with witty, understated lyrics. In 2012, just after beginning his second year at the University of Texas, Frost made a bold decision and dropped out of school to focus full-time on his music. For Frost, the gamble paid off: he issued one of his songs, a sly soul-infused number called "White Lies," as a digital single, and it quickly became a favorite with music bloggers and attracted the attention of major record labels. In August 2013, Frost signed a deal with Atlantic Records, which released a five-song EP featuring "White Lies," Low High Low, just two months later. In 2014, Frost was keeping up with touring commitments while working on a full-length album, recording in Los Angeles as well as at Wilco's personal studio the Loft in Chicago, where he collaborated on a tune with Jeff Tweedy. ~ Mark Deming
