Frankie Rose – ‘Interstellar’ – Album review

Originally published: The Stool Pigeon

Frankie Rose’s second solo outing, Interstellar, contains a significant lack of fuzz. Which is quite a surprise considering her career thus far has been blanketed in various reverb-laden projects. Her time in Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts and Dum Dum Girls weighed heavy on her eponymous debut with The Outs, resulting in something of an homage to Phil Spector’s wall of sound. Interstellar is of a different plane; a cleaner, scenic, more demure record than you’d expect, given its maker’s history. Resonating with eighties synth-pop grandeur, ‘Know Me’, ‘Night Swim’ and ‘The Fall’ shine brightly on what is a brilliantly polished album.
