Indie pop connoisseur Frank Hamilton, premieres with FM his lifelike video for ‘Saturday Night’, the second single from ‘Songs To Make Life Slightly Less Awkward’ – a stunning collection of smartly buoyant tunes, out September 30th.
The video features the talented singer/songwriter’s journey home – via London’s night tube – after a night out…”The whole thing fascinates me – reveals Frank – People are weird enough without alcohol, loud music and a roomful of sexual tension…I love getting messy as much as the next person, but I often wonder what aliens would think if they landed on Clapham High Street at midnight on a Saturday”.
On ‘Songs To Make Life Slightly Less Awkward’, which was recorded in his living room (but co-produced with James Earp + mastered by Robin Schmidt), the London based wordsmith says: “The album is basically a self-help guide masquerading as an indie-pop record”
“Most artists dream of plush studios – adds Frank – but I’d sooner be able to roll out of bed at 4am, make a cuppa and record some vocals when no-one else is around…From a sonic point of view I hope it feels like the album was born in my bedroom, grew up in my lounge and then finished in a nice studio by professionals who actually know what they’re doing”. The album also include the cleverly charming pop number about addiction ‘LoveDrug’.
‘Songs To Make Life Slightly Less Awkward’ is out September 30th.
