There's some songs that resonate with melancholy and a haunting sense of "something bigger" and when this new Frame single arrived in my inbox, I was touched.
Frame is a Canadian producer who likes to create songs that seem to combine a flair for the dramatic with the unstoppable force of a constant beat. On his single "Bad Decisions", released on Manifesto, his production wraps itself like a dark cloak full of secrets around the wispy, haunting vocals of vocalist Bijou.

From the sounds of children playing in the background at the beginning contrasting with the more bleep-bloopey production to the chromatic synths that make up the chorus, "Bad Decisions" seamlessly creates a nostalgic atmosphere that tugs at the heartstrings in the most unexpected of ways.
