The Fraidies is a band composed of new friends, old friends, friends of friends,
and classmates. Jon and Andrew grew up in Moses Lake, Washington.
Jack, Chuck, and David grew up in various Midwestern locales. Though
miles apart, they have a shared history of sitting in basements going
mad for Oasis and the 90s Britpop bands that kept 60s and 70s classic rock
alive. They came together in 2013 via Craigslist. Jon formed the band to
help his friend Bradley fill a bill at Seattle's Sunset Tavern.
At Seattle's Elektrokitty Studios, the inimitable Gary Reynolds committed their
debut LP, Try Again, to tape. Jon's songs and the Fraidies' music seeks
the perfect mix of cranked pop melodies, succinct chordal structures (mostly
in the key of A and G), and trash-can endings.
