This event is all ages
As a founding member of the Vivian Girls, and a drummer/vocalist in both Crystal Stils and Dum Dum Girls, Frankie Rose has been an integral part of Brooklyn's still vital music scene for years. Her highly anticipated solo project not only reflects the aesthetic earmarks of her musical past, but reveals her as a fully-formed artist in her own right.
Haunted by the ghosts of Brill Building, and equal measures of 80s and 90s pop, Frankie's music evokes a spooky, lovely charm. Her ethereal, yet affectation-free vocal melodies, swirling in a sea of church-like harmonies over a bed of tambourines, bells, and propulsive drumming, recall such artists as Eilzabeth Fraser and Black Tambourine. It is both timeless and immediate; deeply personal and completely universal.
Ms. Rose's self-debut titled debut, which hit the streets in July of 2010, is moody and subtle dream pop, as if Cocteau Twins and Spacemen 3 tracked a split LP with some help from Phil Spector. The record receive much acclaim, making it onto Rough Trade's top 100 of the year. Cited by Pitchfork as "lean, elegant music that practically glows in the face of exceptional fuss," and named one of New York Times Style Magazine's "Ones to Watch," Frankie Rose is truly a force to be reckoned with.
Look out for her sophomore LP, coming soon on Slumberland Records.
Nite consists of twins Myles and Kyle Mendes who originate from Winnipeg Manitoba. Currently the duo resides in Denton Texas while creating and performing electronic/dream pop music. The two spent almost two years pretending to work at a film production company to create their album I am Not Afraid.
