Frankie Rose, drummer for Crystal Stilts and formerly of Vivian Girls, has stepped up to bat with her first solo effort, the new single “Thee Only One”.
“Ms. Rose’s music is haunted by the ghosts of 60s girl group, Brill Building, and 80s and 90s noise pop in equal measure. It’s a spooky, lovely sound — Frankie’s ethereal yet affectation-free voice swirling in a sea of church-like harmonies over a bed of tambourines, bells, and propulsive drumming. Recalling in spirit such groups as The Aislers Set and Black Tambourine, Frankie’s music is both timeless and immediate, both deeply personal and completely universal.”
Brooklyn Vegan reports that Rose has left Crystal Stilts to fully embark on her solo project. She will also be drumming for Dum Dum Girls when they play CMJ in New York this week.
Backed by her new band The Outs, Frankie Rose will debut her new material at these upcoming gigs:
Nov 5 The WOODSER – Brooklyn
Nov 13 THE BLACK CAT with CRYSTAL STILTS – Washington DC
Nov 14 THE BELL HOUSE with CRYSTAL STILTS – Brooklyn
