Fighting for Frequency is a New Orleans, Louisiana based band on a mission. Since their 2018 debut the group has set out to, “bring Rock back to its former glory.” They remember fondly the days when power chords and squealing Les Paul solos dominated FM radio. The five man band is determined to bring those days back.
To that end, the group has created a sound that blends the power of Grunge with the Pop/Punk hooks of late 90’s Alternative, executed with the virtuosity and bombast of 70’s and 80’s Rock & Roll. Lo-Fi verses meet multi-part harmony Arena Rock choruses. This is the sound of a group of guys who grew up on Rock & Roll radio. They learned all of the Nirvana howls, Randy Rhoads solos and soaring Journey vocals. Now they’ve put them all together on their debut EP.
“A Million Miles Away” is the inaugural 6-song record from Fighting for Frequency. Since its 2019 release the record has enjoyed success across the digital terrain. Their songs have landed on dozens of playlists and earned tens of thousands of spins on multiple streaming platforms. The record continues to draw in new listeners each month.
The record opens with a bit of life advice for lazy dreamers and a call to action in the form of the song “Signs,” a 90’s Alternative rocker paired with slick 70’s harmonies in chorus. “Fast Forward” follows with a post-breakup lament that pairs the sound of Alt/Pop pioneers Big Star with the slick late 90’s rock of Nickelback.
“Ready to Fall” is a warning to a new love interest that the good times could come to an end at any minute. The tune matches the F4F Alternative sound with a touch of 80’s Metal lead guitar. “Still Standing” turns the volume down a bit for an acoustic ballad that is one part Grunge and part Southern Rock. As the song progresses it builds into a big Rock sound.
The title track is a melancholy power ballad that chronicles a relationship that has seen better days. Its an emotional track that peaks with some big concert-closing, lighter-in-hand sing-alongs. “Favorite Song” closes the EP with an ode to the Rock & Roll radio that inspired Fighting for Frequency to head out on this creative journey in the first place.
