The Sun comes out for Frankie Bouchier
The debut single The Sun by our new signing Frankie Bouchier is here and all the folk at Underfoot records are more than a little excited. Unapologetically original “The Sun’ is available for all to stream from 20-11-20.
Sydney, based indie singer-songwriter, Frankie Bouchier weaves evocative stories with sound. A classically trained multi-instrumentalist, Frankie is equally at home balancing a trumpet on his lips or his fingers on the keys. Frankie’s unique brand of indie synth-pop soars with a drama that is counterbalanced by hook rich harmonies and grounded rhythms. His soundscape reflects a soup of musical influences ranging from the guttural Balkan brass beats of Eastern Europe and the sweeping melodies of traditional Romani music to the psychedelic rock of the ’60s woven with the synch stylings of the ’70s.
“Sound is language, it crosses borders and cultures, the communication possibilities are boundless. I love to listen, I love to make sounds. It begins as an inner conversation and once expressed and recorded there’s the possibility of reaching outside yourself and connecting to others” (FB)
Frankie has been developing a body of work with Underfoot producer Mic. Hardwick over the last three years. “In our first session”, says Hardwick, “I heard such thoughtfulness, intrigue and vision, unlike anything else exactly, delightfully familiar yet quite distinct. Frankie’s songs somehow speak to the core humanity within us all, soulful and full of surprises.”
