Frankie Bird first appeared on the new music scene earlier this year with her triumphant debut single 'Younger Dreams' which introduced us to the twenty-two year old's brand of anthemic indie-pop. Frankie's storytelling prowess continues on new single 'Campfire' which was released last Friday.
Frankie Bird's tuneful and melodic vocal is immediate from the get-go, needing no introduction. There is a shape to her vocal tone reminiscent of 90's female-lead guitar bands - an underlying attitude almost that threatens to belie the aura of 'Campfire'. It is easy to get lost in the track which is the hallmark of a great release and the sharp lyrics and strong melody help keep the song feeling vibrant.
The song was recorded this past spring in North London and as the singer herself says: "It is a summery indie rock track about staying true to yourself and not letting anybody change you...utilising electric guitars and a pulsating bass line"
Growing up in Reading, Frankie moved to London last year t0 pursue her career in music. With a string of performances in her hometown under her belt, Frankie Bird can currently be found in the capital performing on the open mic circuit, no doubt perfecting her craft, which, if her two single releases so far are any indication, is pretty much already done.
Very rarely do we come across a performer who we feel has as very special talent. From her debut release back in April and now this new single, is it clear to hear that Frankie Bird is the real deal. Remember where you heard her first and in the meantime enjoy 'Campfire' which you can listen to below.
