Cody Frost makes waves with debut EP

Alex Klineberg August 6, 2021

Cody Frost’s new single ‘STOMACHACHES’ is out now alongside her debut EP ‘It’s Not Real’. She’s already made a big impact online and now MTV and Radio 1 are taking notice. Fans of Billie Billie Eilish’s moody, electro, Gen Z musings will appreciate Cody Frost.

In addition to the title track and ‘HIGH/BYE’, Cody’s debut EP ‘It’s Not Real’ is completed by ‘verbal warnings’ and ‘(I should) take better care’. In the course of just four songs, Cody proves her immense versatility by delivering electro-punk punch, unforgettable alt-pop hooks and sensitive balladeering. The eclectic sonics are unified by two things: Cody’s unguarded approach to vulnerable experiences, and a superlative vocal.

“I’ve been afraid for what feels like my whole life,” Cody explains. “When writing this EP, I wanted to dig into myself and say out loud things that I could never articulate before. I’ve been learning about my ADHD, depression and anxiety and wanted to tell people the things that I kept locked up, purely because I couldn’t find the words before. This EP is about losing that childlike trust that you have in adults, and essentially coming to grips with being one myself.”

Her music is distinctive and yet it fits right in with the current pop landscape. She could well be tipped for major success so check out her work now before everyone does.

Each track she’s released has widened her appeal. Her imminent breakthrough is further fuelled by extensive radio support, spanning Radio 1 (Jack Saunders, Mollie King, Gemma Bradley), BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio. Her streaming profile is just as strong, with an ascendent status on all key platforms. Highlights include hitting the cover of Misfits 2.0 and an add to Sad Songs at Spotify, while her three singles to date have featured on a remarkable total of 163 international Breaking Pop playlists at Apple Music.

Her musical journey began as a busker in Manchester and sharing covers of songs from Frank Ocean, Nirvana and Slipknot on YouTube. Her career didn’t begin to take shape until she was diagnosed with ADHD, which meant she could finally manage the condition and find a new focus. A steady succession of high profile fans have since emerged, most notably her favourite band growing up, Enter Shikari, plus Tyler Oakley, Sonique, Young Guns and Shamir.
