Frontier Ruckus are set to release their new album, “Enter The Kingdom” next week, and have this week shared the latest taste of that record in the shape of single, “Positively Freaking”. The track has shades of the Mountain Goats or early Bright Eyes in the solid rhythmic acoustic strum and emotive vocals, it also features a wonderfully odd keyboard solo. Lyrically it seems to touch on the problems of existing in an anxious world of emotional highs, lows and plateaus, where, “everything is numbing when it’s not positively freaking“.

Discussing the inspiration behind “Positively Freaking”, songwriter Matthew Milia has suggested the track, “catalogues that universal, inevitable divorce from childhood wonder. Grandparents and pets, the mascots of youth, dying off one by one.” Yet to us it’s a track that sounds more hopeful than that; Frontier Ruckus don’t sound like a band wrenched out of their comfort zone, more one entering a perfectly judged groove. Emotional yes, but not broken, troubled sure but beautiful .


Enter The Kingdom is out February 17th via Loose Records. Frontier Ruckus tour the UK in March,
