Frente! burst onto the Australian music charts with the singles "Ordinary Angels" and "Accidently Kelly Street" in 1992. Frente!'s debut album, Marvin the Album was also a success, going platinum in Australia.
Frente's Indie sound and adult contemporary groove trudged through the mish-mosh of the mid nineties Grunge Alternative trend and came out on the other side, older wiser and squeeky clean. Untainted by the anger and aggresion of that era, Frente digs grooves such as hippy-friendly tunes like Accidently Kelly Street, and Most Beautiful. Marvin, The Album, glistened as what could best be described as an "album version" of a one hit wonder. Frente attained radio play recognition and a music video release with the single Labour of Love and followed it up with the remake New Order cover, Bizarre Love Triangle and Chris Knox cover, Not Given Lightly.
Frente! released a second album, Shape, in 1996, but it didn't produce hit singles like their previous effort and hence sold poorly. Frente! broke up shortly after its release to pursue other projects.

- LyricsEvery time I think of you
I get a shot right through
Into a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine
But it's a problem I find
- LyricsOh am I fooling you? Do you fall for it all or do you just see right through? Are you as cool as you believe? Are you playing hard?
Are you waiting just to quietly clock my card?
Are you waiting for a moment to leave?
I don't know, how I bent what you said
To what I believe you meant, I don't know anything at all
- LyricsYou get the world for your birthday, baby
Open your eyes and say, yes, no, maybe
The box ticks on, the core is a bomb
The world is silent, you listen like a lover to it
Sometimes a mirror's a miracle
- LyricsHere's a door and here's a window
Here's a ceiling here's a floor
The room is lit like a black and white movie
The TV's on that's what it's for
And if you walk real slowly
- LyricsA girl is the word that she hasn't heard
The truth is tiptoeing the edge of her skirt
The traffics a blur, the streets a river
Shes bigger and braver than she is clever
See it's her, it's her
