The Frightnrs

The Frightnrs has been played on NTS in shows including No Parents No Rules w/ Michael Washington, featured first on 31 August 2016. Songs played include I'd Rather Go Blind, What Have I Done and Nothing More To Say.

The Frightnrs hail from contemporary Queens, but they’re time travelers. They nail a very specific sound: ’60s Jamaican rocksteady. Like a lot of the countries in that era, Jamaica took the sounds of American soul and R&B and refracted them through its own culture. Ska and reggae sandwiched the development of rocksteady, resulting in something that’s simultaneously upbeat and laid-back while still baring wounded souls.

Wounds haunt…
