Frank From Blue Velvet – “Falling”


Capturing the “disorientation of modern life,” “Falling” is a commanding new track from Frank From Blue Velvet. The Hastings, UK-based trio craft an eerily enveloping sound throughout, with rumbling guitars and lonesome vocal immersion combining for a lasting impact, reminiscent aesthetically of Roxy Music.

The menacing vocal presence is befitting of a project named after one of cinema’s most memorable antagonists. “I keep falling,” the vocals lament, captivating especially during a final sequence of unsettling string-like eeriness. “Falling” is a stylish, delectably creepy success from Frank From Blue Velvet.

The project comprises “a father, his ‘spirited’ daughter, and the original drummer from Peter And The Test Tube Babies.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
