Having just made an impressive debut performance at SXSW and with a debut EP Dreamstate set to drop in 2 days (on April 14), Frankie might me a relative newcomer to the indie pop scene but she is sizzling hot! With each new song she releases the buzz surrounding her gets bigger. With 800,000 listens on Soundcloud and Spotify, plus a great remix of her track Problems Problems by producer duo BLU J – put her on your list of artists to watch out for this year.
Her latest single New Obession is quite an apt title. Prepare to be intoxicated by her sound and smitten by her charm. Think sweet-girl-next-door crossed with tomboyish girl power – a beautiful mix of retro and contemporary.
This 23-year old singer-songwriter with dreamy synth-pop melodies is 100% in control of her artistic vision. “I want to bridge together the sound of women from the ’70s, like Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell, with women from the ’90s, like Alanis Morissette and The Spice Girls,” Frankie explains. “They were completely unique, sang exactly what was on their minds and represented a real time of girl power, which is something I try to channel into my music.
“Like so many great female singers who came before me, I want fans to listen to my songs and connect with every emotion I’m expressing,” Frankie adds. “Basically, I want you to feel like I’m right there with you, whether you’re in the mood to dance or just need a good cry, I want my music to heal and lift your spirits..”

1-BORNS- Electric Love
“This song…so vibey and brings me back to The Beach Boys days. I love him and I got a chance to hear this song at SXSW and it was everything. I’m all about harmonies and the chorus makes me dance every single time. This song gets my band and I pumped so no brainer”
“This was one of my favorite songs of last year… so beautifully written and his vocal performance gives me chills every single time. Such a strong powerful ballad which I’m all about. One of my favorite artists to watch right now, undoubtedly.”
