“This is an adventurous work that finds new areas to explore in shoegaze’s well-trodden territory.” The Guardian (4/5)
“Taking a shoegaze aesthetic to a sparkling frontier, the world Froth’s music embodies is one that shines brightly.” The Line Of Best Fit
Los Angeles four-piece band Froth have shared their new single and video for ‘Sensitive Girl’, taken from their new album Outside (briefly), out now through Wichita Recordings.

Shot and directed by the band on the road, the video features footage from South Africa and their recent London headline show.
Bassist Jeremy Katz said, “The video is made of super eight tour footage we shot around South Africa and Europe. We borrowed a friend’s camera and bought four rolls of daylight film, and then remembered that 90% of days on tour are spent in the van which can be boring for a film. So we tried to have as much fun as we could for the 20 minutes in between getting out of the van and loading in and that’s where most of the footage comes from.”
Formed in Los Angeles in 2013, 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 scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014. The following year saw the arrival of Bleak, a more dynamic, adventurous effort that matched lush shoegaze soundscapes with driving krautrock beats, and earned the band press attention from outlets including NPR Music, Noisey, Vogue.com, and Stereogum, among others. Froth toured extensively across the U.S. and Europe in support of the album, opening for acts such as The Drums, Pond, Tamaryn and Craft Spells.
The Thomas Dolas-produced Outside (Briefly) is the sound of a band that’s truly found their voice, and in many ways feels like Froth’s proper debut. Across the ten songs, the band dialled back the noise and psych-pop found on their previous LPs to reveal delicately beautiful melodies, intricately arranged instrumentals, and some of their most experimental songwriting to date.
