An atmospheric, haunting tune propelled by staccato drums, layered synths and a bittersweet vocal, ‘Fall Fully Backwards’ is the debut single from Deptford-based duo Frank’s Daughter. This is intelligent, emotive, beautifully constructed music that should appeal to fans of Talk Talk, Portishead, Massive Attack, post ‘Kid A’ Radiohead, even Kate Bush.
Frank’s Daughter are Frank (vocals, guitar, keys) and Arthur (guitar, bass, programming), two British musicians who found themselves working in New York in the late noughties. The idea for Frank’s Daughter was born in a Brooklyn bar over several bottles of red wine and many, many whiskies. The duo returned to London, but finding the urban environment uninspiring, they relocated to an out of season alpine hotel, taking a van full of recording equipment. There, they spent two months in total isolation, returning with a stack of songs that were finished in their Deptford studio. These desolately exquisite songs form ‘The Sound Of A Heart Unravelling’, Frank’s Daughter’s debut album to be released in June.
