Frankie Rose playing at Brillobox on Jan 26

Frankie Rose will be heading out on a US tour later this month, playing at Brillobox in Pittsburgh on January 26.

Rose had an impressive year in 2013, releasing her Fat Possum debut album, Herein Wild, which garnered praise from outlets ranging from The New York Times, Village Voise, Billboard, SPIN, BULLETT, T Magazine and more. After a full North American tour with Franz Ferdinand, Rose is now preparing for another run of dates with White Lies. Rose’s live show is incredibly high energy and entertaining. Take a look at Rose’s intimate performance for Rookie Magazine of her song “Into Blue” here: http://rookiemag.com/2013/09/sunday-video-frankie-rose-into-blue/

Rose’s critically acclaimed Fat Possum debut, titled Herein Wild, came out last month and received accolades from publications including The New York Times, Billboard, Spin, The Village Voice and Interview Magazine for a sound that Stereogum notes, “establishes [Frankie] as a true force to be reckoned with.”

Press Quotes /

“Rose’s glistening pop doesn’t sound over melancholy. The music is moody enough to lyrically recognize life’s struggles and the passage of time, but beautiful enough to evoke vast bodies of water and clouds meandering by.” Billboard

“She brings a modern spin to the quintessential goth tune [“Street of Dreams”] with menacing synths and pulsing rhythms, her angelic voice taking on a more ghostly cast than usual.” T Magazine

“It’s safe to say that Rose is an indie queen.” The WILD Magazine

“There is no questioning her status as a crusader of Brooklyn’s indie-pop scene.” The New York Times

“There comes a moment in every Frankie Rose song where she gives you exactly what you want: a shimmering guitar solo; a lush cascade of harmonies; a chorus that swells and swells until it finally cracks wide open and you’re heady from the sugar rush.”Boston Globe

“Expands on her New Wave-y pop leanings, turning in an upbeat, string-enhanced performance with just a hint of Broadcast in the mix.” SPIN

“She’s rocking the current micro-vogue for Eighties shoegaze pop: guitar-synth swirls, paper-thin New Wave bass surge, space-waif vocals like a spring breeze that barely billows your window curtains.” Rolling Stone

“She’s the Zelig of Brooklyn indie rock.” BULLETT Magazine

“Brooklyn linchpin Frankie Rose, whose latest opus,Herein Wild (Fat Possum), weds the glorious layered-vocal luminosity and Cure-cribbing beat-beds of last year’s great, quantum-leaping Interstellar to the spunkier garage-pop grit of her debut, and throws in the occasional string section.” Philadelphia City Paper
