Frank’s Daughter ‘The Sound Of A Heart Unravelling’….
“A gorgeous mesh of looping sonics; a musical display that could soundtrack every moody walk in the empty streets as the lights go out and the night sets in. It's gloomy, but gloriously so“ This Is Fake DIY

“Frank’s Daughter have demonstrated an incredibly artistic approach to songcraft. Though not the simplest or easiest of LPs to sink into, The Sound of a Heart Unravelling certainly won’t disappoint” GoldFlakePaint

"The healthy mix of guitar, keys, synthesizer and programmed drums produces something that gives off something of a Radiohead/Portishead vibe – but with a twist that is undeniably a work of genius" Musika

"Every moment in all of the songs is rare and to be treasured. This is music that just bares complete and utter soul. Soul music." Gipsy Death And You...

We were Waves Once

We were Waves Once,
You and I.
We rode the sea's then,
The clouds and Ice.

But what won't kill us,
Will surely die.
And what can't hurt us,
Will leave the lake, without a trace.

In a heartbeat,
My breath and sight.
Were taken from me,
All the light.

But what should kill us,
Will surely die.
And what must hurt us,
Will leave the lake, without a trace.
