ABOUT THE ARTIST
“…a first-rate songwriter and band leader.” — Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
“‘Metal Frames’ [. . .] is full of compact, bristling and melodic rock songs indebted to snarling punk, noise-laced pop, muscular classic rock and Cheap Trick.” — Salon
“You won’t see more indie rock cred than on the CV of Jason Narducy.” — KEXP, “Song of the Day”
Taking their name from one of indie rock's most beloved formats, the wily trio Split Single are fronted by singer/guitarist Jason Narducy and also feature drummer Jon Wurster and bassist/vocalist Britt Daniel. While Daniel's work with Spoon and Divine Fits is well known, the other two-thirds of the band boast pedigrees that are just as lengthy and impressive: Wurster and Narducy have both played with Superchunk and Bob Mould, while Narducy is also a former member of Verbow and Telekinesis. After forming in 2012, Split Single recorded an album's worth of tracks, three of which ("Fragmented World," "Waiting for the Sun," and "Last Goodbye") they shared on their SoundCloud page in 2013. That album, Fragmented World, arrived in April 2014. A follow-up LP, Metal Frames, arrived two years later, this time with Wilco bassist John Stirratt taking over bass duties from Daniel.
