BOTW #76 – The Fraidies

Fraidies Close Up Small
Seattle-based indie/alt-rock outfit, The Fraidies, put out a record this summer and if you don’t know about it, you should. Upon first listen of the band’s debut release, Try Again, I felt like I was whisked away to the late 1990’s/early 2000’s era of alt-rock. The Fraidies’ straight forward pop-rock melodies, retro-inspired guitar riffs, and upfront lead vocal styling will have you feeling ready for an epic cross-country road trip in your Jeep Wrangler (can you picture that?).

“Never Love Again (It’s Doubtful)” is a stand out track for me, love the melody and groove of the tune! Check it:
