Frankie Rose’s new LP, Interstellar is out in February, and today the Williamsburg scene mainstay offered up the record’s first single “Know Me.” You’ll easily recognize the shoegazey swirl of the guitars from her last effort — the excellent, self-titled Frankie Rose & The Outs — but it’s a little more uptempo and peppy. So, if shoegaze suggests an attitude/posture choice where the band resides safely within the shroud of reverb, oblivious to things outside the aura, and straight-up sunniness is represented by a beaming, straight-ahead stare, maybe this is somewhere in between. Belt-gaze? Rib-gaze? I realize navel gaze means something different. See for yourself and download “Know Me” down below.
