Frith, the project of Travis Frith Warner, released the very catchy track “Loud Mouth” today. The Los Angeles-based artist reminds of Andrew Bird in his string-tinged arsenal, especially when the chorus hits — the words “loud mouth,” repeated over wavy sitar effects and enveloping strings. The “that I want,” bridge at the two-minute mark works equally well, with Frith’s melodic vocal charm leading the way here. “Loud Mouth” is built around a beautiful centerpiece of a chorus, showing the artist’s melodic sensibilities, as well as extremely polished production with an exotic pop pull.
Frith’s classical music infusions trace back to 2008, when he began working for renowned composer David Campbell (Adele, Beck, Michael Jackson). Per Frith, it was during this time that he began incorporating classical and orchestral music into his indie-pop sound. It’s working excellently.
“Loud Mouth” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2018’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Indie Pop.
