The Missing Frets – “Bodhi Tree”

Tackling the topic of “how we are all connected through the mental struggle to find meaning in our existence,” The Missing Frets’ new track “Bodhi Tree” shows the Philly act successfully pursuing a haunting, affecting sound that integrates rock and folk, akin to R.E.M.’s heyday. The “meant to be / fire in the sea,” escalation just past the one-minute mark is striking, the brisk guitar work and vocal presence combining for a memorable aesthetic. With a sound that recalls R.E.M. as well as The Waterboys’ shanty-like charm, The Missing Frets are churning out a successful style and vein of songwriting on “Bodhi Tree”.
