Zack Hadley-Lead Singer of Austin Indie Band Frantic Clam

2010 January 14

There’s a party going on tonight at Beauty Bar that you don’t want to miss. Up-and-coming Austin indie rock band Frantic Clam is releasing Lolita, an EP with a couple tracks off their forth coming album. Joining them is MoTel Aviv, The Pons, and Candi and the Strangers. When you add free drinks, you know it’s gonna be hot.

Earlier this week, we met up with Zack Hadley, lead singer/guitarist/songwriter of Frantic Clam. When you hear his music, his falsetto-esque voice sounds big and glam. In real life, however, Zack comes off as shy and introspective. After a little coaxing, we got Zack to start talking.

He’s been in the army. He’s served in Iraq. After his vehicle got hit with 6 bombs, he suffered severe injuries and brain swelling. When he got back to Texas, his wife had split. No wonder he’s introspective.

When listening to his music, you can pick up a variety of different sounds: Vocals are a little like the Scissors Sisters, the wall of guitars is a little bit like My Bloody Valentine, and it’s all tied up with a Pixies, 90′s-alt/pop feel. It will be interesting to see how their style evolves over time.
