The Frst is Bringing the Heat this Summer with “Bruce Lee,” ft. Kellin Quinn & Bronnie (INTERVIEW)

Our favorite Nashville-based alt rockers, The Frst, are back again this summer with another banger: “Bruce Lee." This latest song is a collaboration with pop punk legend, Kellin Quinn (Sleeping with Sirens), and British pop-rock queen, Bronnie. This song serves as further proof that The Frst can tackle guitar music from any genre-defying angle they choose--including going as far as dropping 'producer tags' in the opening few beats. The result is always fun.
