Songwriter Dylan Tidyman-Jones, formerly the guitarist of the recently departed goth-psych syndicate The Mallard, began working under the name FRONDS in 2012 - producing an album of psychedelic dream pop with Robert Jackson at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California. Mellifluous vocals float over a foundation of finger-plucked guitars, electro-acoustic drums, bass, claps, Giallo score textures, and FX slathered toy keys. Brian Lee Hughes of Castle Face Records was so taken with the record, a smooth salve to his fuzz-addled ears, that he not only offered to put it out but started a whole new imprint, DO NOT DISTURB RECORDS, based on the boudoir vexations contained herein. The song 'Wash' was featured on a compilation curated by Sonny Smith for Polyvinyl Records. Shifting incarnations of the band have performed along the west coast. Current and former members include Adam Myatt (James & Evander, Pale Blue Dot), Mark Clifford (DRMS, In Watermelon Sugar), Ela J (Wymond Miles, Night Gown), Dylan Edrich (The Mallard, The Michael Cronin Band), Adele Bidet, Greer McGettrick, and Kevin Woodruff.
