The good news of the week is the return of Frankie Rose (Vivian Girls, Beverly, etc.). Ahead of the the new album, Cage Tropical on Slumberland Records and Grey Market in August, Frankie's dropped a lovely new single.
Called "Trouble", the number soars with a blissed-out vibe that recalls an unlikely mix of a Giorgio Moroder-produced Donna Summer classic with a solo Laetitia Sadier cut. A heady mix, the single is the sort of assured, future-looking indie-pop that Frankie's been pursuing in the last few years. The result is a sleek bit of alt-rock machinery, the sort that sounds like it's capable of hitting some stratospheric heights on its way to the cosmos.
Cage Tropical will be out on August 11. In the meantime, keep track of Slumberland Records for news of Frankie Rose's activities in the run-up to the release date, and be sure to follow Frankie via her official website, or her official Facebook page.
