The Frequency are an independent rock band from Los Angeles, CA. Marc Cazorla and Alex Stiff are the core songwriting and recording duo behind the music and use an array of analog and vintage instruments in creating sounds that have been described by NME as "stripped back music strengthened by simplicity as much as beauty". Q Magazine has given the new release "Morning to 3 A.M." 3 out of 4 stars and hails the band as "able to form perfectly crafted Air-like synth-pop while also stretching their wings on the 17 minute ever-shifting psych rock track 'Ego Is the Drug/3 A.M.'

The Frequency have recently signed a worldwide publishing deal with Chrysalis Music in the UK and the song "Jim Gordon Part II" has been heard all over the globe due to being licensed for a yearlong BlackBerry television commercial campaign. Music from The Frequency can also be found in major motion pictures and television shows.

Inspired by music from Pink Floyd, Air, Can, and Spiritualized, the live show adds another level of intensity to the music. They have shared the stage with artists as diverse as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Bravery, Primus, Matisyahu, Mutemath, and Lotus. The show has been described as an audio/visual feast for the senses and led Quebec City's Live Daily newspaper to declare "The Frequency should be on every rock fan's radar."

The Frequency's "Jim Gordon Part II" was nominated for the 7th Annual Independent Music Awards for Jam Song of the year.
