A New Music Video by ALBERT FROST: Modern Romance

ALBERT FROST released his highly anticipated third solo album, The Wake Up, in April this year.  In a departure from Frost’s blues roots, this album explores various musical avenues and lyrical content.  Case in point is his new single, Modern Romance.  The song, co-written with Hunter Kennedy, can best be described as “psychedelic Karoo rock”.

Modern Romance is about the incongruity between the image people display on social media and the reality of their lives.  This premise is illustrated in the music video where a world is created where people live with headsets on.  They have been wearing the headsets so long that they don’t remember the real world.  Albert’s headset malfunctions and he wakes up…

Modern Romance was directed by Loedi Van Renen at Kill City Pictures

The theme of the music video, truth versus fiction, was tragically underlined during filming.  Albert and the film crew missed a fatal gang related shooting mere minutes before they started setting up at their location in Wesbank, Kuils River on 14th of August 2016.

Reviews

“ALBERT Frost is without doubt one of the most talented guitarists this country has seen.”  Bianca Coleman – http://www.iol.co.za/weekend-argus/albert-frosts-beautiful-blues-will-melt-your-african-soul-2010432

“’The Wake Up’ functions on several levels. It is an accomplished work of art which, while far away from pop music, is easily digestible and should hold broad appeal – this album is definitely not only meant for guitar geeks. And although I’m sure hard-core blues fans might be disappointed, ‘The Wake Up’ definitely retains the essence of what makes Albert Frost.” Floris Groenewald – SA MUSIC SCENE: http://samusicscene.co.za/wp/albert-frost-the-wake-up-in-review/

“The Wake Up’ is in many ways an artistic statement, because Albert Frost deliberately moves outside the blues genre here, producing a particularly unique sound.  To long-time fans, the sound on this album would nonetheless be recognisable as Frost’s own, because even when he is being pigeon-holed as a blues guitarist, his originality allows him to stand out – a quality which, if anything, has only made his blues-playing seem more alive and more inspired.  But The Wake Up offers insight into the musician beyond the blues.” Jannike Bergh – https://vhmusic.co.za/blogs/news/114733956-albert-frost-the-wake-up

“‘The Wake Up’ launches Albert out of the stagnant realms of blues guitaring and expands his horizons to reach a wider audience with more relatable music, yet still provide quality entertainment. The album is an audiophile’s dream with quality production. Song construction is thoroughly thought through to deliver an appealing variety of melodies. Albert Frost has done the rock community a giant favour by warming the non-believers up to the idea of easy listening music with superior musicality. This album will stand the test of time and certainly changes the future for this first-rate music maker.” Louise Pieterse: http://www.louisepieterse.com/single-post/2016/05/05/ALBERT-FROST-REVIEW-THE-WAKE-UP

Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ …THERE…OK. I’m a huge Melodeath metal fan. I’m proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn’t for everybody, it’s for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don’t understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don’t have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn’t. Metal is my morning coffee and it’s my night sleeping pills…
