Enthralling listeners with ethereal indie-pop elements and melodious musicality, UK artist FRANSIS is blessing fans with her heavily anticipated Honeymoon EP. Five tracks of pure alternative perfection collide to form an EP that truly encapsulates her sound, sass, and unparalleled successes.
Kicking off with lead single “Honeymoon,” the EP brings a compelling narrative full circle. Narrating a journey through womanhood, the fondness of childhood and reminiscent approach blend sublimely with compelling drum beats, blaring riffs, and echoing melodies to form an opener that is truly contagious. Vocalist Emma Withers explains, “it’s nice to have an uplifting sense of appreciation for my own personal experiences which have moulded me even if they didn't seem so poignant or great at the time, how we know not what we have until it’s gone.”
“Pin Me Down,” which was spurred by the tragic murder of Sarah Everard in the UK, and “Long Old Road” continue the rambunctious indie-rock rebellion that FRANSIS possess, proving that the debut Honeymoon is a force to be reckoned with. Described as a therapeutic exorcism, Withers showcases musical diversity at its greatest, offering thought-provoking lyricism like no others. Concluding with “Hold Onto Water” and “Ticking Boxes,” FRANSIS is indulging listeners with blaring melodiousness and pure passion for protest.
