by Frankie Rose
Released: Feb 2012
Label: Slumberland Records
A former member of indie elite bands Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts and Dum Dum Girls, Frankie Rose sits comfortably on her own amid a dazzling jumble of dreamy synths and slippery guitars on Interstellar. Her calming purrs pulsate like a yogi chanting by the sea, especially when she sings new age-y lines like, "All that I want is a pair of wings to fly/ Into the blue of the wide open sky." Bouncy pop tunes like "Know Me" and "Had We Had It" recall the jangly retro vibes of her previous bands, but mostly Interstellar has the grand melodrama of The Cure -- through a slightly rosier lens.
