 With a sound that draws on the 80's jangle-pop of Flying Nun and Sarah Records, artists such as The Go-Betweens, Field Mice and The Chills, 'Get Bleak' thematically pokes fun at the notion that moving from a city will instantly fix your problems, giving a particular nod towards London, Toronto or New York where rising prices help hurry the move.

A relatively simple arrangement serves the foundation for elevating the emotionality of “Come On Violet.” Primarily supported by an acoustic guitar nestled away in the recesses of the track, Mons Vi’s vocals, as beautiful and delicate as a butterfly’s wings, holds the listener spellbound with heart-rending lyrics akin to poetry.

Come On Violet - SoundCloud

t's been a little too long to be biding my time,
searching around between bottles of wine.
And the call of the wild,
somehow gets lost in the dark of your eyes.

Come on, Violet,
Come on, Violet.

Spin on a beam at the top of the moon,
run through old scenes that once felt brand new.
You never notice the things you lose.
Could it wake the fear in you?

Come on, Violet,
Come on, Violet.
I'm alone.

On their latest eclectic and emotional outing, there’s hints of the Carole King’s ‘70s pop, Jonathan Richman’s earnest eccentricity, Ned Doheny’s white boy funk, Greg Dulli’s lust, the Meat Puppets’ bastardized Americana and the wild wit and narrow self-control of The Silver Jews.



"A safer bet there’s never been – this record is essential." - GoldFlakePaint 

“Imagine the euphoric pop of Small Wonder getting caught in a time warp to the wild west with Modest Mouse’s ‘Satin in a Coffin’ and you just about scratch the surface.” - DIY Mag

“I was taken aback by its apparent simplicity; a simplicity that at first masked a wealth of subtle nuances, wry homages, and nostalgic narratives that were enough to make listeners lament growing up anywhere other than suburban America” – The Line of Best Fit

“Utterly brilliant...they make you nostalgic for memories you never had and take you back to places you’ve never before been.” - London in Stereo

“Frog returns and is alive with tales of sadness, hysteria and delusions. Though the narratives are ambiguous and chimerical, each feel personal and poignant. The cult of Frog will only get bigger.” – Cereal & Sounds

“Locked between the unstoppable force of self-deprecation & the immovable object of the American Dream.” – Various Small Flames 

“Frog continue to exist outside of musical fads and trends, a welcome moment of quiet contemplation in the sometimes hectic modern world, a subtle, stunning triumph.” – For the Rabbits

Rah Rah - Good Winter - Official Video - YouTube


We never go drunk tobogganin' anymore
I'm still a man, but gettin' home
and passin' out on the floor
We used to wake up every mornin' so sore
and then we meet up for brunch
at a quarter til' four
I remember we were datin' those two friends
even though we were both really in love
with just the one of them
We're sayin' "parents" like I'd never done before
We meet up to start drinkin'
like it was a chore
And darlin', I don't intend to live in the past
And I'm hopin' this notalgia will eventually pass
It's so strange how certain memories
they just last, they just last, they just last
That was a good winter
That was a good winter
We used to go skatin' every other day
Slap in time to chatter
I was Lefleurs, you were Messier
Then we would all huddle close in the bars
Stay til' closin'
then get back in our cars
And darlin, ain't it crazy just how fast
the moments of your life become your past
and it's so strange how certain memories
they just last, they just last, they just last
That was a good winter
That was a good winter
I haven't seen that old gang in a while
But I don't really need to
I've got a new life now
I work on my songs and I love my girl
Still slam a few cold ones on a Tuesday
after a curl!
That was a good winter (that was a good winter)
That was a good winter (that was a good winter)
