Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Frute offers a unique brand of space-themed rock, blending elements of psych-rock, funk, and Americana. Their latest album, Stephen Hawking Told Me So, was released on August 20, 2021.
“The music of Sonny Miles was downright inescapable in 2020, but we’re definitely not complaining. Catallabs dropped at the beginning of 2020 as an outlet for a slew of collaborations, but still boasts a unified vision of forward-thinking soul and funk. Clean, falsetto vocals and harmonies ride atop fat bass lines and staccato keys only to unravel into crisp rap lines spat with intensity. Equal parts pop, funk, and hip-hop, Catallabs sets the tone for another year of excellence from the young Winston-Salem-based songwriter. And with a full-length album on the way soon, we can imagine 2021 will be much of the same.” – Grant Golden, CLTure
