Frankie Rose floated free from her musical history when her second album Interstellar was released in February to universal acclaim. On it, Frankie took the lessons learned with her debut album - like reverb as the holy route to pop-grandeur, scaling a wall of teenage tears - and transferred those skills into a brave new world mapped out by ten new songs. Within these gorgeous songs, we hear the confident swagger of a singer and auteur fully aware of how to build the simplest of pop moves into aching, full-blown melodramas, and grab hold of an emotion to ride its darker waves. Interstellar's epic, widescreen pop never sacrifices feeling for polish, but instead uses big sound, savvy arrangements, and spacious production to bring us even closer to the emotions in the songs.
The response was immediate and appropriately positive. Great reviews came from all outlets, including the much-respected "Best New Music" tag from Pitchfork. Frankie and her band toured extensively in the US, UK, and Europe, and impressed greatly with their ability to bring the amazing new songs and intricate arrangements to life in a live setting. As we roll into the autumn, Frankie is taking to the road in the US again for a series of shows in select cities, including stops at the MidPoint and Pygmalion festivals. Frankie will also be releasing a new single for album highlight "Night Swim" that includes two quite interesting album demos, revealing an even starker emotional weight at the heart of these lovely tunes. A limited promotional CDEP will be given out at retail and live performances that adds excellent remixes from Fort Romeau and The Go! Team to the aforementioned tracks.
Free with purchase of the Interstellar LP or CD, or for the cost of postage and handling if you have the album already. Max two per customer, please. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE DIGITAL SINGLE ONLY CONTAINS "NIGHT SWIM" AND THE TWO DEMOS. THE REMIXES ARE NOT ON THE DIGITAL SINGLE.
