Welsh rock band Frown Upon have released a new single titled 'Sratch' as well as their debut self-titled EP.
Said to share musical similarities with Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, the band have nailed a recent tour with Holding Absense and are hitting the road again in July with Catch Fire.
Their self titled EP is currently available on all platforms and will have a limited amount of physical copies available for it also.
When discussing what kind of lyrical themes you can expect from the album, vocalist Zac Noneley said:
"Our self-titled EP covers a range of themes from friendship, politics, bereavement, and love, 'Scratch 'is about going to bed and not being able to sleep as you are overthinking about your current situation in life. But it’s a realisation that everyone does it and that really I’m only young and shouldn’t worry about it. 'Waster' is about that one friend who resents you for a decision you’ve made, even though you both know it’s for the best.
'Impolitic' is a political statement, referring to the result of the EU referendum last summer and those who voted for Brexit. 'From the Ground' is about getting caught up and liking a girl even though you’ve only seen each other a couple of times. Then when you go your separate and you get all upset but in the end it doesn’t even matter. 'Peace at Last' is a track that talks about losing a loved one at a young age, but not really understanding what happened and asking for questions now."
