Amindi K. Fro$t shared her breakout song "Pine & Ginger" this year, the dancehall-pop earworm the result of years of the 19-year-old musician fine-tuning her craft. Her new song "Eggs Aisle," premiering today on The FADER, is a more sedate neo-soul groove – using subjects like astrology, family advice, and self-doubt, Frost spins a tune that wafts and curves compellingly like incense smoke.
"I started writing 'Eggs Aisle' while I was still in high school," Fro$t said in an email. "I wrote it in second person; I’m talking about myself. Talking about my dad. And it isn’t even really about just my dad. It’s my mom, God, The Man. I was feeling very closed-in and felt like I had to start taking charge. It’s about taking control and realizing that I have to rule my life. Also I was a junior, 16 years old, and I loved Mac Miller. He has a song called 'Eggs Aisle' and it wasn’t even about eggs or anything so that’s what inspired me to write that first couplet. A while later Valleyz sent me a beat he'd been working on with Swavy and Bad One and it fit perfectly, the music really matched the vibe of what I wanted to convey."
