Tambourines – “Frankenstein’s in Love”


Monsters can fall in love, too, and “Frankenstein’s in Love” conveys as such with a melodic, throwback charm. The track comes courtesy of Los Angeles-based act Tambourines, via their new album Tamboween II: Another Notch. The band’s ’60s and ’70s influences converge with a playful tale of adoration between “Frankie” and his beloved.

“Did you think you could run now, baby, did you think you could hide?” the vocals ask initially, exuding some fright into the hazy, hypnotic title-touting refrain. A classic “alive!” vocal snippet drives into delectable guitar twangs as eyes open, as Frankenstein falls for another tall and green counterpart. The “oh, Frankie!” segments and deep-pitched responses make for an oddly adorable portrayal; “Frankenstein’s in Love” is a melodic charmer from Tambourines, Weekend Voodoo, and Boy Deco.
