Franck (Just Franck)
The brutal wave
Wierd Records (USA) / LP
The debut album from
Frank(just Frank) from Paris, France entitled The Brutal Wave. The Brutal Wave draws
from many rich traditions of US and UK guitar driven wave, minimal synth, early black
metal and new indie rock from Brooklyn respectively - layering lush washes of atmospheric anglophilic guitars above a
warmly orchestral analogue synth and drum machine fueled minimal electronic
backdrop. Equally of disparate origins are the band members themselves, Chris
was born in New Jersey and grew up with half-Indian Kirti in the South of
France, although both were schooled in London. Despite such varied influences
and backgrounds, Frank(just Frank) indeed proudly embrace the French pop
musical tradition and present a freshly recontextualized version of the french
cold wave sound, which might well be most appropriately called ‘La Vague Froide
Moderne’ in 2010.
