Hin Du, out of Huntington Beach, includes five young dudes (all 18 to 21), who are fusing garage rock and blues...definitely in a similar vein as Fidlar, Allah-Las, The Soft Pack and Surfer Blood. They have all been friends since high school ( which was only about 3 years ago for most of them), where they also launched the band as well. The band has received great support from Hurley (4-son
g EP + performing at the upcoming US Open of Surfing with Grouplove and White Arrows). Recently, the guys opened for Delta Spirit and Tijuana Panthers at The Observatory, and have also performed with Allah-Las, Har Mar Superstar, JJMAZ, Gantez Warrior and many other local standouts at well-known venues in OC and LA
Formed in 2013 in Los Angeles, Froth first garnered attention with their debut LP, 'Patterns.' Originally intended as a small-run cassette release, the album quickly became an underground sensation in the Southern California music scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014.
2015 saw the release of the band's sophomore album, 'Bleak.' A more dynamic, adventurous effort, the record matches lush shoegaze soundscapes with driving krautrock beats. Froth toured extensively across the U.S. and Europe in support of the album, opening for acts such as The Drums, Tamaryn, Pond and Craft Spells.
After signing with Wichita Records in 2016, Froth is set to share their third album, 'Outside (briefly),' on February 10, 2017. This time around, the band has dialed back the noise, revealing delicately beautiful melodies, intricately arranged instrumentals and some of their most experimental songwriting to date.
"At one level, this is garage rock … But the music on Peace, Victory and the Devil breaks out of those constraints, not as if it's struggling but as if it's shrugging off any concern for rules, as if it's easy to pioneer a new sound.
Whether [Jones] is channeling spirits, or whether Feeding People is simply a band of spirited musicians all pulling together to make her glossolalia of gloom the official soundtrack for these apocalyptic times, Peace Victoy and the Devil will make you want to stockpile this album and hole up in your bunker to await the band's next revelation."
— Dan Collins, LA Record
Garagey racket meets a Wedding Present whirl of skittering guitars. A quote from their own band bio sums up the band's style and sense of humor in a sentence: "Influences include: The Velvet Underground, The Fall, The Pixies, Bo Diddley, Talking Heads and a bunch of other crappy bands." Heh. Crappy, indeed.
