Frontier Ruckus (Session #2)
Frontier Ruckus is a Michigan six-piece who write personal songs about being brought up as a 90’s child. The project serves as a creative outlet for Matthew Milia’s poetic, lyrical storytelling. His twangy, quivering wail cuts a deep swath of regional imagery through references to grocery stores, middle school teachers and landmarks of his childhood region. Co-founding member, Davey Jones, plays a reserved style of banjo. He takes on the role of electric guitar through complex lead riffs.
Sitcom Afterlife, the band’s newest record, is a slight diversion into hook-centered songwriting. The dense storytelling remains, but Frontier Ruckus have found strength in melodic, pop-leaning rock.
