A Q&A with Cody Frost
Electro pop-punk from the mean streets of Burnley…
What’s the title of your latest release, and what does it mean to you?
‘Verbal Warnings’, my boss got one before he left!!
What was the hardest part about putting this release together, and why?
The hardest thing about this release has to be the wait, but it’s been worth it! (I think!).
Who produced the release – what did they bring to it?
‘Verbal Warnings’ was produced by Dan Weller, he’s honestly like a big brother to me, he really is amazing and puts his all into everything he does. He also really changed my perspective on pop music and how I see it.
What do you want the listener to take away from listening to your music?
The job you’re in isn’t the be all and end all of your life unless you want it to be, you are more important and don’t let anyone make you think you’re not.
How does a track normally come together? Can you tell us something about the process?
I usually have bits and pieces of lyrics written down and then me and Dan get together and show each other what we’ve been listening to to to gather inspo, then after that we make a beat/loop and I start to put the lyrics together!
What band/artists have influenced you the most since you started this project, and why?
I wrote some of these songs a couple of years ago so the main influences for this particular EP are The Skints, Enter Shikari, Slaves, Gorillaz and Post Malone.
What countries would you like to tour? Are there any standout venues you’d like to play in?
To be honest I haven’t performed in so long I think any venue would be great. Would be cool to do a festival one day.
If you could pick one track for our readers to listen to in order to get a taste of your music, what would you pick, and why?
What ambitions do you have for the band/your career?
To be able to relate to people and maybe write an album.
Finally, as you leave the stage, what are your parting words?
Can anyone tell me when the next bus to Burnley is?
