Max Frost Releases New Single “President”

Max Frost - Best New Bands

New York – Inspired by the current presidential primary, the talented Max Frost has released the single “President.” The Austin, Texas soul singer, writer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist critiques the American political system – which has become a bit of a sideshow – with a lyrical tongue-lashing, combined with a colorful, psychedelic visualizer. Frost wags his finger at the NSA, Congress’ reckless military spending, corporate media, and candidates clawing for “a chance on the throne.”

Frost says of the song: “This election has shown how disenfranchised my generation has become with our political system. It’s become a TV show and we are merely the observers. Even the popular candidate’s chances are dissolved by the convolution of a broken government that, even after it is exposed, continues to operate as a plutocracy. How are we supposed to care when all outcomes feel the same?” 

Max Frost’s EP Intoxication - which features the single “Withdrawal” – hit #1 on Hype Machine. His singles “Paranoia” and “Let Me Down Easy” can currently be heard on TV in promo spots for FX Intoxication lyrically ”personifies love, money, and death as a drug.” The EP follows Frost’s breakthrough single “White Lies” from his debut EP Low High Low. Frost mixes a variety of genres for a fresh, unique sound. In a Best New Bands interview, Max Frost talked of how his sound grew to what it is today: “As a guitar player, I started really with the blues and rock. Then when I started learning other instruments, like bass, that led me more into funk. That’s where it really flourished. By the time I was playing drums and recording my own records, I got more into folk and being a song writer. When I started I started working with hip hop artists in Austin, that’s when I started mixing everything together to make a vocal style that sounded like a sample. That created the whole sound I have now.”
