A midday nap in the woods turns into a wild race again time in the new video for “Primetime” from Cold Fronts. The track comes from last year’s Forever Whatever, the local band’s debut for Sire Records, and is now paired with a clip directed by Josh Goldenberg.
Cold Fronts have shared a new single called “Miss Austin” on the Urban Outfitters blog, paired with an interview with frontman Craig Almquist. The track is the first bit of new music we’re hearing from the local outfit since last year’s Sire Records debut Whatever Forever, and it’s showing us a low-key side of the usually energetic band.
Philly indie rockers Cold Fronts recently released their debut record Forever Whatever last October, and they just shared their tour-centric video for the energetic “Energy Waster.”
The band, fronted by vocalist/guitarist Craig Almquist, is currently down in Austin to play SXSW (which is where Almquist was discovered by Sire Records’ Seymour Stein in 2012). Their fast-paced power pop is highlighted on “Energy Waster” with its harmonized guitars and exuberant lyrics. Continue reading →
We have been big fans of Philly indie rockers The Districts for some time now. Since their formation in 2009 the band has quickly ascended the ranks of Philly indie rock, rapidly becoming the unequivocal “band to watch”. Recently we here The Key got a chance to talk to the band about this journey, which continues with what is arguably their biggest Philly show to date tonight at the Electric Factory with Lady Lamb and fellow Philadelphians Purples. You can click here to get more information on tonight’s show. Continue reading →
Philadelphia indie-punk band Cold Fronts is currently streaming their new record, Forever Whatever, over at the Wall Street Journal. The album will be available October 23rd via Sire Records. The backstory of Cold Fronts’ introduction to Sire Records is quite the industry anomaly. The band was playing a show outside in the rain during Austin’s SXSW music festival in 2013 when Sire Records’ Seymour Stein walked by and noticed how much the audience resonated with the music and performance. The rest, as they say, is history. Continue reading →
Philly local indie rockers Cold Fronts are streaming a brand new single “Buschleague,” which is slated to appear on their debut full-length Forever Whatever. The song is a synth-driven anthem that is not lacking in catchy hooks. Continue reading →
Get to Union Transfer early tonight: twin cities rockers Hippo Campus will open the show for The Mowgli’s. Think of this young four-piece as the Vampire Weekend of the midwest; they incorporate lively Afro-beat melodies into fuzzy indie rock, nicely exemplified by “Suicide Saturday,” which you can download below.

The afternoon is dragging a bit, so I totally needed this: Philly’s Cold Fronts, apropos of nothing, dropped this high-energy, irresistable Weezer-esque song wherein frontman Craig Almquist professes his love from Alana Haim, aka @babyhaim, the rhythm guitarist and youngest of the sisters that make up the pop rock outfit HAIM. “I see you up on the TV, why won’t you be with me?”Almquist ponders with what sounds like the utmost in sincerity. Check it out below, and see Cold Fronts play it in person (hopefully) when they open for River City Extension at Boot & Saddle on April 16th (tickets and more info can be found here). HAIM does not have any upcoming Philly dates, but maybe this song might change that? Or, like, maybe it’ll make it a permanent thing. Continue reading →
