Blend the early The Cure, For Against, the slender apprentice Morrissey, the Joy Division from “ Disorder” and current bands like Beach Fossils, plus some dark minimal wave bands, and the result will be something similar to Frank(just Frank) . The Parisian duo (based in, over their history, locations including New Jersey and London) subscribe to the neo cold-wave and are about to release their debut album through the New York label Wierd Records . It pulls in Jangly guitars, old rhythm boxes, cold-hearted synths and a book of notes about the tension of opposites (the political left and right, darkness and light, personal privacy against public dimension, etc...). Chris and Kirti have recorded just short of a dozen nostalgic songs that Wierd will distribute from 6th July. This is how the V ague Froide Moderne sounds in 2010.
