Brooklyn’s Frankie Rose has a notable indie pedigree, bouncing through the original lineups of Dum Dum Girls, Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts. Her 2010 debut was along the same garage rock, surf-tinged lines, but she’s branched out for the forthcoming Interstellar.
Out February 21st on Slumberland, Rose’s latest effort wraps her tender, sweet vocals in a jangly reverb that recalls the poppier moments of The Cure or The Smiths. Lead single “Know Me” even has faint strains of emulated strings:
A truly pretty song that’s a ray of sunshine in the post-holiday gray.
