Song Premiere: Frank Smith - "Chewing Glass"

Music  |  Audio

It only takes a few seconds of any track from Austin’s Frank Smith to know that this outfit isn’t just one person, but a full-on rock band. The name is the result of frontman Aaron Sinclair’s quandary with a former band that discovered another group with the same band name. The new group spent a fair amount of time looking for a fresh, clever name and at some point decided not to waste anymore thought on it. They chose a somewhat anonymous name and decided to let the music speak for itself.

When you hear Frank Smith’s straightforward approach to sound, too, the no-hassle name makes sense. Check out the band’s song “Chewing Glass” from forthcoming LP Nineties, due out April 2.
