New Rochelle band Frog (brothers, Danny & Steve Bateman) have just released their "New Ro" single, a folky love letter to their hometown:

"Steve and I both grew up in New Rochelle, we went to New Rochelle High School, we recorded the entire album at our mom's house in New Rochelle, we're New Ro boys. The town's got a lot of charm, if you know where to look. Some years ago they changed the tagline of the city from 'Queen City of the Sound', which ruled, to 'Ideally Yours', which...I'm not even sure what that is. There's signs everywhere saying: New Rochelle, Ideally Yours." - Daniel Bateman, Frog

The single was first premiered on the UK's Various Small Flames website and has since been covered by Stereogum, an internationally renowned music publication.

"New Ro" is taken from the "GROG" album, which is out on November 17th via independent record labels Audio Antihero and Tapewormies.
