Fran Announce A Private Picture
Some labels just get on a roll and top hit after hit, and this is very much the year of Fire Talk; today they announce the debut release of Fran, the musical project of Maria Jacobson. This first single is a doozy, bringing in this heavy riffs balanced out by the playfulness of the chorus, though the song’s subject matter might lean closer to the heavier moments; the video definitely attacks the realm of the “boys only” clubs, and deservingly so. Musically it reminds me a lot of Aldous Harding or Cate Le Bon in the way the song’s structured, building and then taking twists and turns that illustrate the power of voice and artistic flare that keeps listeners coming back for the experience. A Private Picture will drop on November 15th.
