Singer, songwriter and guitar extraordinaire Max Frost delivers on his newest track, "White Lies". Making his home of Austin, Texas proud, Frost explains his musical process as "engineering a musical spaceship to travel into outer space," and well, here we are up in the clouds upon first listen.
This tune is nothing but feel good, up-beat and funk-influenced. The poppy guitar riff sets the mood immediately, while the soft electronic accents creep into the melodic composition. With only the help of a manager or two, Max Frost has released a handful of singles to-date, channeling what appears to be the lovechild of Citizen Cope (evident on "Sunday Driving feat. Kydd") and Pheonix, evident on "White Lies" itself.
Influenced by the likes of D'Angelo, Jimmy Hendrix, Raphael Saadiq and Erykah Badu, Max Frost's relationship with the soul/alternative side of music is not one to pass up.
