The best kept secret in music

Press


Vocalist Todd Wickersheim whispy, pop-friendly whine and Vedderish bellow coupled with his exceptional group's spacey, Airplane-like drone; bass-fed jazziness; Walt Mink-worthy power riffing; lightly toasted Fab4 influences; Toad The Wet Sprocket-meets-Grapes of Wrath guitar chime; and all-around jam-ability make this outstanding eight-song effort one of the better local listens released so far this year. - Al Muzer


Any rock group who can casually toss a line like "Everyone is going apeshit" into a song and make it work most certainly is onto something fresh and intriguing. This foursome from Hackensack, NJ combine impassioned vocals, a very polished production, bright, shimmering, catchy-as-hell arrangements and amazingly sharp, profound songwriting into one extremely potent package. The lyrical content for all the songs avoid safe, cliched subjects, opting for meatier game instead: such heavy topics as depression, persevering against impossible odds, rebellion gone wrong, friends being more hurtful than your enemies, and the capacity to feel as both man's greatest asset as well as biggest weakness are addressed with striking clarity and honesty. Yep, there's lots of tasty food for thought for the listener to chew and digest offered here, which is almost a very good thing. Thoughtful, intelligent, provocative rock music is no easy feat to pull off; these guys accomplish this very task with excellent results. - Joe Wawrzyniak

Bio

Third Frequency, co-founded by guitarist Winston Campbell and vocalist Todd Wickersheim, has refined their alternative rock sound over the last several years, culminating with the release of their third independent album, Fire Up The Tribe. Their focus is to develop thought-provoking music and affect a large audience through their performances, recorded material, printed reviews and online publicity.

Together with violinist Dana Ford, bassist Serge Alexandrov and drummer Fernando Rendeiro, Third Frequency experiments with many different types of music and incorporates them into a truly unique style. Their influences range from classic and progressive rock to punk to R&B, including such artists as Bob Dylan, REM, Bob Marley, Billy Joel and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their songs have a large range of subject matter made digestible through catchy lyrics and melodies.
