The Singles are Vince Frederick (guitar/lead vocals) and Nicky Veltman (drums/back-up vocals). Hints of garage rock, power pop, glam, blues and punk all find their way into the music. Both originally from Detroit, the two joined forces in LA in 2012 to restart The Singles— a moniker Vince had used in the past to release his songs with different incarnations of the band.
With the help of friends on bass, the band began playing locally, bringing stripped down rock-n-roll to the LA music scene. Things got serious once they met producer Rick Parker, who was brought on to mix their single “(She’s Got) A Heart of Stone” in early 2013. His chill vibe, part surfer, part jedi studio master, was the perfect counterpoint to the off-kilter energy of the band.
Equipped with an arsenal of songs and Rick’s genius, the band went back into the studio to record their latest full-length album Look How Fast A Heart Can Break.
The Singles’ Look How Fast A Heart Can Break will be available in the U.K. on CD, digital and limited edition vinyl on April 1st (via Proper Music Distribution & F Minor Distribution). Fall U.K. tour dates to be announced soon.

HERE’S WHAT WAS WRITTEN ON THE STONES THROWN AT THE SINGLES:
“If you need a rock ‘n’ roll release… I think I have the perfect song. The Singles’ ‘Inamorata’ hooked me instantly. The duo, which formed in Detroit, pulls from some of my favorite bands to create a glam garage sound all its own.” – USA TODAY
“Los Angeles via Detroit rockers The Singles excel in ’70s/’80s style American power pop, all crunchy chords, catchy melodies and killer harmonies.” – POPMATTERS
“The informed garage-pop hits full-force on The Singles’ track “Inamorata,” solidifying the duo of guitarist/vocalist Vince Frederick and former Gore Gore Girls drummer, Nicky Veltman’s commitment to their Detroit roots of stripped down rock ‘n’ roll.” – THE GHETTOBLASTER
“Vince and Nicky’s vocals blend together perfectly over the wash of noisy guitars and pounding drums, bringing out a tension between the bluesy rock influence and the pop-centered harmonies”. – (THE) ABSOLUTE
“In the sound of ‘Inamorata’ you can clearly (and loudly) hear from where Vince Frederick and Nicky Veltman hail. Natives of Detroit and based in Los Angeles, the duo, known as The Singles, have a keen feel for power pop, glam and unadulterated rock ‘n’ roll.” – KDHX RADIO
“Stripped down, jaunty garage-pop boldly nods to T. Rex’s influences, but done this well that is no bad thing at all.” – THE MAD MACKEREL
