“Frankie Rose makes all the right choices, proving that you can evolve as an artist without leaving the past entirely behind” 8.4 Pitchfork Best New Music
“Dreamy and unashamedly huge music that demands to be heard” Sunday Times
“Shimmery dream-pop with panoramic crystalline harmonies” **** The Times
“Like a modern Stevie Nicks backed by Warpaint…by far and away Rose’s best work” **** Time Out
“A star turn… Think Veronica Falls meets Arthur Russell and investigate further” 8/10 Uncut
“An irresistible record” **** The Guardian
“Pealing melodies and the sort of exquisite production that binds every element into a deliciously immersive wash, a record to get lost in” Observer
“Gorgeous widescreen magnificence” 8/10 Clash

And we’re delighted to announce that Frankie Rose will be hitting the UK for a series of shows, a tour if you will, this coming July. As well as her own headlining shows, Frankie will be appearing at Camp Bestival and Tramlines Festival. Dates as follows:
