Published Oct 02, 2009Either Frankie Rose is impossible to get along with or she just can't stay in the same place for too long. The Brooklyn-based musician has spent time drumming for three blogosphere favorites - namely Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts and Dum Dum Girls - yet she still keeps moving on. Now, she's revealed that she has a new project called Frankie and the Outs.
The band, which sees Rose move from the drums to the front-and-centre spot, is an all-female five-piece. They'll be issuing their first release, a two-song single, through Slumberland on October 27.
MP3s of the tracks have yet to make it online but Brooklyn Vegan has heard them. The site describes A-side "Thee Only One" as "a two-and-a-half-minute wall-of-sound pop that is what you might expect from someone who spent time in Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts," while B-side "Hollow Life" is "organ-driven, harmony-laden, dreamy and drum-free, owing a lot to Spacemen 3."
The cover art is above, and on Frankie and the Outs' MySpace page there is a rough demo of the song "Where Do You Run," which was originally written for the Vivian Girls.
