Nashville rockers Benchmarks have shared a new song called “Frames” off the band’s upcoming release, Our Undivided Attention. The new music was mixed by Jay Maas (Defeater, Transit, Polar Bear Club, Make Do And Mend) with the band handling production themselves.

Singer Todd Farrell Jr. commented: “I have some pretty intense inattentive ADD and this is sort of about me trying to navigate my brain while also keeping up with real life, relationships, friends, and how being on the road half the year doesn’t make that any easier. The title of the record, ‘Our Undivided Attention,’ comes from the bridge and how on a larger plane, we’re all trying so hard to do so many things at once, while probably sacrificing the quality of everything we do and the quality of the time we spend with people. As soon as we wrote this one, we knew it would become the cornerstone to the rest of the record.”
