The Front Bottoms Make Knees Weak With “Summer Shandy”


Our love affair with The Front Bottoms dates back to the earliest recordings from the New Jersey favorites, and with each release our admiration for their work continues to grow. Their new album arrives later this month, and earlier today a killer promotional single hit the net.

“Summer Shandy” is the latest in a string of digital singles released by The Front Bottoms over the summer, and just like “West Virginia” or “Cough It Out” the song features the band’s signature pop-influenced indie rock sound. It’s the kind of track only The Front Bottoms could write, as it finds vocalist Brian Sella pining for a love that can never last over staccato guitar work and a steady, marching band-like drum accompaniment. You can stream the song on ConsequenceOfSound.

The Front Bottoms have also released an extended video for “Summer Shandy.” The clip runs around fifteen minutes in length and features shots of the band exploring Alaska on a recent tour. You can view the video at the end of this post.

Back On Top, the long awaited new album from The Front Bottoms, arrives September 18.
