Frankmusik playing a stripped down version to Orange RockCorps volunteers

Frankmusik playing a stripped down version of 3 Little Words to Orange RockCorps volunteers

 

On Saturday the 15th of August I caught Frankmusik playing a stripped and slowed down version of his 2008 single Three Little Words in a communal area outside Thamesmere Leisure Centre in Thamesmead. Frankmusik, aka Vincent Frank, acknowledged that this was probably ‘the weirdest gig I’ve ever done!’

Juxtaposing an old school, beaten up Casio (I think!) Keyboard, with all the tone and clarity of something out of the original Doctor Who theme tune, with vocals characterised by an impressive falsetto range that Mika would be proud of, as well as soulful meanderings reminiscent of some kind of Croydon-born John Legend, this really was a trippy yet haunting rendition.

Frankmusik, 2009’s champion of squelchy Electro-Pop and man’s answer to La Roux, has debut album Complete Me (released August 3rd) out now, and it could just be this years answer to Vehicles & Animals. Go buy it!
