Alex Frankel – “Negative Space”

Holy Ghost!’s Alex Frankel put his name on a Jewish deli in Brooklyn earlier this year, and now he’s putting it on some solo music. What’s more, Frankel’s Negative Space EP is out this Friday — surprise! Today he shares the title track, which transports his familiar quicksilver songwriting touch from a disco context into spunky, effervescent synthpop. Check it out.

EP tracklist:

01 “Get Back”
02 “Negative Space”
03 “Ryland’s Theme”
04 “Lost Design”
