Frenchy And The Punk
From Zen Ghost
Inspired by a wide range of influences including Adam and the Ants, The B-52s, and Florence and the Machine, New York City two-piece Frenchy And The Punk prepare for October's Zen Ghost LP. A sneaky peek at the album comes in the form of Mon Souvenir, a smashing single that showcases their sound. Taking on the spirit of the cabaret via a post-punk dream, Frenchy And The Punk manifest a sensational semblance of new-wave and dark folk. Percussion player, song-writer, and vocalist Samantha Stephenson teams up with guitarist-composer Scott Helland, known for founding Deep Wound and Outpatients. The duo bring a focus to the album's over-arching theme of soul phantoms, tulpas, and haunting memories that stay with us.
Chunky acoustic guitar chugs a motoring melodic chord progression as drums and vocal enter on the snap. A moody projection of poetic lyrics swirls in gusty eddies that hang in gentle corners of tone. The guitar elevates into frills as the chords become expanded into rhythmic branches. Catchy and contagious, the driving pulse of music reels behind a slower and more grounded vocal section. The progression rises as the music patterns shift and evolve in the emotional out-laying of song.
