SCOTTISH outfit Frankie Morrow have followed up recent singles ‘White Rocks’ and ‘Sunflowers’ with a new release called ‘A Sign of Promise’.
What’s more, they’ve announced the release of their debut EP ‘Blue Parrot Backpackers Hostel’ on 28th October, which will be launched with a special headline show at The Hug in Pint in Glasgow on Friday 25th November.
The group – brought together by a chance meeting on a train home from London – have recently gained support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, with each release unveiling newfound depths to their talents.
‘A Sign of Promise’ continues this rich vein of form. Deftly crafted, the intricately layered arrangement is easily their most ambitious to date – lead singer Frankie’s lilting vocals tying the whole thing together – as it builds from its subtle, contemplative opening verses to a near-orchestral finale.
Detailing the singer’s acceptance of a break-up, gorgeous layers of clarinet, strings and sprightly rhythms start to gently form around her vocals – ‘who am I to love you? who am I to judge?’ she concedes over the warm and inviting soundscape. As if to complement this personal revelation, the track builds to a near orchestral climax and fades out to the sounds of St Paul’s bells.
Blessed with that unique vocal and undeniable musicianship, Frankie Morrow invite us further into their distinctive yet warmly familiar sonic world with each impressive release – and it’s safe to say, we can’t wait to see what comes next.
