Dream poppers Frederick the Younger are getting the hype machine up and running just in time for the new year with the release of Tell Me, the second single for their upcoming album “Human Child.” Tell Me is a boss bopper, moving along at a brisk, but restrained pace that reflects the careful construction of the tight composition. This is pop music, but dressed up nice and with all the indie accoutrements that get the critics riled up. You can draw favorable comparisons here to St. Vincent or Angel Olsen, playful beats with a new wave undercurrent that carry remarkable vocals. As an indicator for things to come, this promises to be a remarkable album.
Listen below and be the judge of that yourself.
