Fresh off the success of her critically revered debut EP, ‘Grow’, 21-year-old soulstress Frances announces the release of her hugely anticipated new single ‘Let It Out’, from her forthcoming sophomore EP, impacting on Communion Records this October 16th.
Anthemic, yet fragile, the ‘Let It Out’ EP is an exciting body of work that serve as both an untainted confessional and an perfect testament to Frances’ ability to craft effortlessly addictive pop songs. From the honest simplicity of the title track’s chorus to the way her silky voice compliments the funky, soul-inspired melodies of ‘I Care’ (a new collaboration with Canadian producer Pomo), ‘Let It Out’ is not only the perfect follow-up to ‘Grow’, but an exciting preview of what’s to come.
Already warming up big audiences with appearances at Haldern Pop, Wilderness, Bushstock, Somersault, & Curious Arts Festival this summer, as well as being personally invited to support Sam Smith at his comeback gig at Thetford Forest, news of Frances’ memorable live performances are spreading fast. And now, with news that her first two London headline dates have sold out, Frances looks set to step into the limelight as not just a modern vocal-powerhouse, but the future voice of her generation.
