Frog Announce New Album
Frog’s new album, Grog, is released November 17, their first album since 2019’s Count Bateman. You can get to know these two big-hearted weirdos through their “Kings of Blah” UK tour documentary.
New York duo Frog (brothers Danny & Steve Bateman) return with their fifth album. This collection of gorgeous indie Americana is full of the nostalgia, hope, defeat and lust that earned previous singles ‘Judy Garland’ and ‘You Know I’m Down’ several million streams on Spotify.
Eclectic and wildly creative, this fully realized LP veers from the gorgeous grooving funk of ‘Black on Black on Black’ to the classic pop of ‘Maybelline’ before ‘New Ro’ exemplifies the gothic and cartoonish characteristics that songwriter Daniel Bateman describes his latest work with.
Taking its cues from ‘70s pop, ‘60s garage rock, ‘90s guitar music and timeless Americana, Grog is sometimes Jonathan Richman, sometimes Hall & Oates, sometimes Billy Joel, sometimes Steely Dan, sometimes Dennis Wilson, sometimes Townes Van Zandt…but always Frog.
