When songwriters Ben McLaughlin and Mick Wilson met back in 2016 they immediately bonded over seminal 90s indie rock bands like Sebadoh, Sonic Youth, and Dinosour Jnr, and soon enough started sending each other new unfinished songs on WhatsApp. A far cry from when they last fronted bands back in the early 00s (like indie slackers “Soap Star Joe”) when bands used Scrapbooks not Facebook to capture their achievements. With the addition of their talented friends Phil Bray(Drums) and Lucy Albani (Keys/Vox) Froggy Prinze was born.
The band spent the last 2 years crafting an album or two worth of tunes by two songwriters with different sensibilities but with common influences on their sleeves. With their debut 5 track EP “Is this supposed to be happening?” released in April 2019, Froggy Prinze have enjoyed community radio play (2SER, Triple R, AMRAP AMCOS), critical acclaim with comparisons to their musical heroes The Go-Betweens, and played some memorable shows around the gritty inner-west of Sydney.
