The Frequency (UK) / Press

“The Frequency arrive on stage & immediately the blue skies return & for the first time today, the sun comes out providing some very welcome warmth. The Frequency are a four piece band who have an abundance of great original material that takes influences from all over the place; with a bit of pop, rock & blues all finding their way into the bands songs. The band as always start strongly with their twin guitars sounding loud & proud, echoing nicely around this large park area. The band give the party a massive injection of energy & have by far the most amount of people in front of the stage dancing and singing along to their well constructed vibrant songs. A real standout song is a brand new number called “Our Way Always” which shows some really passionate, from the heart songwriting that shows a a great new direction for this band that have all the right ingredients to be really going places. The band’s 45 minute set was a complete high, full of entertainment from start to finish”

"Save Today" whetted my appetite, "I Know You Know" sealed the deal. Those were my first two downloads, so The Frequency (UK) was two for two! The best bit of news is that the other three songs I downloaded were equally strong.

“The Frequency have a great sound, from the Brit Pop stylized "Sticky Little Finger" to the Get Down and Gritty Swamp Rock sound of one of my favorite's "Changing Faces". The Frequency are in high rotation on my Rock Show and fit nicely along side Rock Greats like Bryan Adams, Echo and the Bunnymen and Snow Patrol. Great band, Excellent Musicians.......The Frequency are on their way up......way up! Pat Patterson Rock DJ NE1fm 102.5 Newcastle Upon Tyne”

“I first discovered The Frequency at a Northern Soul/Indie night in Bournemouth. They were opening for a 'minor' league Jam tribute but what I discovered that night was a band who aren't content to remain 'minor league'. Although their main influence would be the Britpop era this 'Brit Rock' act are different enough to have a style completely their own. After this performance I went to see them again to make sure it wasn't just a one-off, clearly it wasn't. Vocalist Austin clearly wears his influences on his sleeves (Weller,OCS,Oasis to name 3) & has paid his dues in a local 'covers' act, the really rather good Alibi. Drummer Phil Hodgetts has a unique style while Dan Kazimirov (guitar) is equally competent. When their original bassist left one wondered if they could replace him? Step forward one Jim Martin to comfortably fill his shoes. With a quite excellent debut LP behind them (Fall To The Floor) it is now time for this band to take the next step in their musical journey.”

“The Frequency were an exciting band to work with in the TV studio. They were highly professional in their approach and the performance looked great on camera.”

“The Frequency are an exciting band - "Fall to the Floor" was a great debut album; I love "New York Symphony" and "Sticky Little Finger". Great live band - be it in a sweaty cellar bar or at an outdoor festival.”

“The Frequency, like all good art, is completely subjective. You'll either love them, or pass them by. Personally speaking, I couldn't pass them by, even if I tried. If you're a fan of quality guitar based music, with a dash of attitude that doesn't compromise on the musicality, I thoroughly recommend seeking this band out. The feeling I get when I listen to their music, is that all I want to do is pick up my Gibson SG and join in with the fun.”

"Things really start moving when popular local four piece band The Frequency take to the stage, the place is packed, with more people than I have ever seen at the venue. The band have recently recruited a new bass player Jim, this has seen them reinvent themselves with a new completely new sound and different direction. They have steered away from sounding a cross between the Stereophonics, and Ocean Colour Scene, to have a new original harder edged sound which includes injections of soul, with an almost bluesy feel. The band delight their home crowd with a mixture of mainly new songs including new live favourite “More Than Your Ever Be” featuring some great uplifting lyrical content. The new songs came in the form of “Full Circle”, “Pray”, and the final number “All Up”. From the reaction of tonight’s crowd the band were triumphant here in their performance with their progress getting a big thumbs up for their harshest of critics."

“I have never worked with a band with so much enthusiasm and energy and with a desire to play their music to as many people as possible. Their songwriting and professional performances are as good as any top class band out there and it won't be long before they get the opportunities they deserve. They will be at the head of the new revolution of rock n roll that's gonna blow away all the mindless rubbish being portrayed as so called music at the present time. As they say "Turn On Tune In", they may be here for some time!”

“Friday 8th February The Frequency at The Cellar Bar: Boscombe, Bournemouth At the other end of the scale, The Frequency will be delivering a completely different dynamic this Friday night- and it's one that's more likely to get you storming the stage than leaving you spellbound. There's a lot of acts attempting the whole rock n' roll thing right now; but few do it quite like this lot. Convincingly resurrecting the retro vibe of a vintage era, The Frequency bring back memories of great British bands from a time where nobody shied away from the power of the wah-wah solo. While they may not replicate the 'true' Britpop of Oasis; and take a different route from the stadium anthems of Foo Fighters... they certainly settle somewhere in between. It's a hometown show tonight so we can safely guarantee the awesome time you'll have if you go along too.”

“Simon Townsend......... “I think you will be hearing a lot more of this band in the future””

“Phil Nelson (Music Management).....”Genuine Energy......Sophisticated Songwriting””

"This exciting Bournemouth four-piece have a long list of influences, which include Paul Weller, Neil Young, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Ocean Colour Scene, The Beatles and Zeppelin. You can hear them loud and clear though each brilliant track, in fact it's quite amazing how this album is so familiar while being utterly unique, you will instantly connect to this, which is why we have made it our July2012 album of the month. We can not stop listening to it !"

“Steve Hillier (Record Producer)...... “If the purpose of these recordings is to get people excited, I think they have done that.””

"Since forming a little over a year ago, Bournemouth based band The Frequency have achieved a good deal in their short time much, more than most local bands could ever hope for, they have played a showcase for Creation records founder Alan Magee, performed a number of high profile gigs at a number impressive venues including the legendary 100 Club in London, met Liam Gallagher of Oasis and had their impressive debut Ep reviewed by Rock Regeneration."

"A great debut.... This band have raised the bar high!"

"If I were to make this album (Fall To The Floor), as a smoothie, I would need half a manics, a dash of athlete, a pinch of blurasis, and a pint of attitude with a Weller cherry on top."

"Mr Kyps is becoming almost a regular venue forThe Frequency, this is their 2nd gig here in as many weeks (they supported The Who’s Simon Townshend last time). They start with a huge build of guitars and a drum crescendo before breaking into what promises to be a storming set of tunes – until Dan (guitar) has a nightmare and creates a pause for switch and retuning. As expected this doesn’t throw them, they get on with being four pretty boys kicking out good numbers and pulling the crowd along with them. I’ve not seen The Frequency live for a while (despite many invites) either full on or acoustic, they have a curious mix of heavy chords and big choruses, with gentler open spaces that works well. Aus is using the stage well, threatening a crowd invasion for some parts to create more of a stir. Dan H-S takes advantage of the large stage too – in places the bass is silent, and he steps into the dark side-stage areas to visually emphasise the musical absence, a good touch."

"On a cold Sunday night in Christchurch The Thomas Tripp is packed to the rafters. Having witnessed/promoted The Frequency almost from their early beginnings I’ve come to see if they cut it in the acoustic arena. I needn’t have worried-on this performance the futures bright. They open with “Sticky Little Finger” and “Run With You” before they dedicate their “guilty pleasure” cover just for me with the Stereophonics “Dakota”. This may seem too obvious with a voice like Austin’s but they nail it which isn’t a surprise. A couple of new tracks are debuted tonight;the impressive “You Don’t Have To Know” and “Steal A Phrase” which can also be heard on the Rock Regeneration’s exclusive interview and session with the band. Live (& acoustic) favourite “The Lighthouse” gets the usual treatment and the crowd love it and promptly join in with loads of joyous enthusiasm. A short but sweet acoustic set by one of the Dorset’s finest live acts, I’m expecting

“Review of the track "Run With You" - A track that starts off just like The Brakes' Heard About Your Band, but then turns into a very enjoyable slice of Indie rock. You don't hear enough Wah-Wah pedal solos anymore.”

“Featured on AMBY! Check it out!!”
