On ‘Control’ Frequency Cowboy brings the uptempo indie pop vibes with sounds reminiscent of those you would have heard in the 60s and then re-imagined in the 90s. You can listen to ‘Control’ below.
Frequency Cowboy is the pseudonym for Somerset-based multi-instrumentalist and singer Sam Hurt. A classically trained pianist, his Wurlitzer piano is the core instrument on his tracks, and creates the backbone for his distinctive sound.
Citing a wide array of influences, he is drawn to artists ranging from Beck, Talking Heads and The Police, to Sir Was, Sonic Youth and Northern Soul, effectively conveying an affinity for these artists while still maintaining a his own blend of idiosyncratic indie-pop.
The song is about learning from life the longer it goes on. Looking back over past experiences is helpful but can’t be at the expense of being in the moment. I’ve been trying to control less in my life but it is difficult.
