Nettwerk Records is excited to announce the signing of lofi artist/producer frumhere.
Revealing his raw emotionality and sophisticated musicianship, each new body of work from the centers on his hyper-imaginative and deeply personal storytelling. To that end, the lifelong musician also known as Quentin Mulligan builds many of his tracks around the countless voicemails he’s saved up since his early teens.
“A lot of my songs come from looking back on specific moments in my life, then using them as a jumping-off point to whatever I’m creating,” he notes.
Out today, frumhere. shares first Nettwerk single, “dreary dusk.” The track is about anxiety, isolation and puppies. “When I adopted my dog in the pandemic, I went through a horrible fit of anxiety,” reflects Quentin. “I started to question a lot of the goals and personal relationships that I’d made over the years. Every night, the pup and I would go on long walks. I found peace and serenity walking through the streets of West Los Angeles.”
With the arrival of his breakthrough single, “she only likes me when i’m drunk,” frumhere introduced the world to a dreamlike form of lofi touched with the sweet haze of nostalgia. Raised in Santa Monica, California, Mulligan took up classical piano at age eight and started competing at the national level within several years. After graduating from the prestigious LA County High School for the Arts, he attended CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies in New York City. Although he spent much of his time studying at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, he began looking beyond the classical world and experimenting with production. Soon discovering his affinity for lofi, Mulligan started posting on SoundCloud under the name frumhere. “In the beginning, I got a lot of people asking, ‘Where are you from? You sound like an East Coast producer,’ or ‘You sound like a West Coast producer,'” he explains. “And I’d just tell them, ‘It doesn’t matter—I’m from here.'” frumhere introduced the world to a dreamlike form of lofi touched with the sweet haze of nostalgia and his signature style will continue to expand with upcoming releases through Nettwerk.
frumhere. joins Nettwerk’s expanding roster of instrumental artists that includes The Album Leaf, Nathan Kawanishi, SCayos, Fletcher Reed, The Alaskan Tapes, Slumberville, Skinny Atlas, and others.
