HOT TAKES: Getting to know Cody Frost

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

Q1 – who is in your band?

So, I’m the song writer, co produced by Dan Weller, but my band members consist of two boys, lovingly named the sweethearts because they are the sweetest lads I know. Rob, my drummer is an old friend that I knew I wanted to be in a band with since we met and Sam, is a guitar tech for bigger artists and I met him through touring but he just loved our music and we all get on so well, so I’m proud to finally say that we are the band, I would like them to start helping me write some parts too as it would be a waste of their amazing skills to not.

Q2 – What is your take on your own sound?

It’s whatever the listener wants it to be, I’m a genre jumper, I listen to so many different genres I’d be silly to box it off as just one thing. Right now I’ve been working with “chav-punk, or rave-punk”  but honestly, as soon as I put a label on anything I change and grow as a person, I could never be just one thing at a time, I can’t even pick a gender hahah.

Q3 – If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

Depends on the person, if you’re into pop-girly stuff I’d say one of my slower songs (I should take better care, Mea Culpa) if you’re into more heavy, Shouty stuff I’d say WOT? OrDWYSSM. But one of my personal faves is No Admission.

Q4 – What is the plan for rest of 2023

Tattooing! I’m gonna be recording the next music video in December but right now I just get to focus on my other job. I love tattooing ‘cause it’s kinda meditative, a calm after the storm, Some of my customers don’t even know I sing so it’s like a Hannah Montana type life.

Q5 – What is one song you wish you wrote?

Lover you should’ve come overJeff Buckley

Q6 – What three bands or artists inspire you the most?

My Chemical Romance, Enter Shikari, the Skints are my top three faves!!

Q7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

I will deffo be touring next year, but I just brought out a new video for my song WOT? But everything else is available on all streaming platforms now!!!

Q8 – What zoo animal represents the personality of your band?

Probably a cockatoo, I just scream mad shit and look ridiculous most of the time but the boys are probably golden retrievers hahah.
