Of Note: ‘Hit Me’ by Cold Fronts


Of Note: ‘Hit Me’ by Cold Fronts

Do you remember the legend of the actress who was discovered sitting at the counter of a soda fountain? 

Well, the members of Cold Fronts can certainly relate.

Claiming Philadelphia as their home (by way of York), drummer Alex Smith and songwriter/lead singer Craig Almquist anchor the group.  They were discovered while giving a free concert on the sidewalk by hot dog stand by none other than Seymour Stein (co-founder of Sire and a vice president at Warner Bros.).  Stein simply listened for a bit and then walked up and asked the group for a CD. 

The rest, as they say, is history.

Let’s hope that is not true for the future of this sharp sound band because ‘Hit Me’ is a super infectious, compact bit of pop magic.


One never grows immune to the potency of seventies-inspired, guitar-driven pop – the kind so clearly evident here.  The moment that chorus lands, I find myself wanting to bop around the room like an energetic teen.


The band released their E.P. ‘Forever’ back in November 2014 on Sire Records

It is infectious... Let's hope their label supports them properly to get them heard.

BTW - How are you doing Upton? Hope things are better.
