Frankie Rose’s upcoming album Herein Wild will be released in September on Fat Possum Records. We’ve been addicted to her song Know Me; a refreshing throwback to the 80’s tangled with electric drum beats and glimmering echoed vocals. Lucky enough for us, Frankie Rose took the time to discuss Know Me, among other things like her upcoming album, Vivian Girls and Dum Dum Girls, and being into The Cure!
AMBY: Hello Frankie, cheers for talking to AMBY. What have you been up to lately?
Frankie Rose: Well. I just finished my third LP HEREIN WILD which is coming out on Fat Possum Records in September.
AMBY: Which songs are the quintessential Frankie Rose?
Frankie Rose: I think they all are ! heh! But my favorites are the slow jams.
AMBY: Last year you released your second album Interstellar. What are your thoughts on it now that you’ve had time to reflect on it?
Frankie Rose: It’s long gone in my mind, now all I can think about is the new one..
AMBY: Which songs are your favourite off the record?
Frankie Rose: Moon In My Mind and The Fall I think!
AMBY: Know Me is great! How did you come up with the concept for the video?
Frankie Rose: I didn’t. The director Ricardo Rivera did!
AMBY: What’s the story behind your beautifully eerie track Night Swim?
Frankie Rose: It was a written a long time ago..I’m not sure if there is too much back story, but it another one of my favs off of Interstellar.
AMBY: We’re also fans of Vivian Girls and Dum Dum Girls! What are the main differences from being in a band and working solo?
Frankie Rose: It harder in a lot of ways because there is no one to share the burden with when there are problems. However it is very satisfying to do something by yourself start to finish.
AMBY: If you could create a law that everyone would have to follow, what would it be?
Frankie Rose: YOU MUST BE KIND TO ONE ANOTHER.
AMBY: Which bands or artists have you been listening to lately?
Frankie Rose: I’ve been a pretty serious The Cure kick.
AMBY: What’s the best song of 2013 so far?
Frankie Rose: The entire new Dirty Beaches L.P
AMBY: And lastly, what’s something about Frankie Rose that nobody knows yet?
Frankie Rose: I’m not a natural blonde.
Thank you Frankie Rose, for giving us your answers!
