Interview: Update: Frankie Rose | Features | Pitchfork

frankie6242Frankie Rose
As the NYC indie rock fixture lays down strings for her cinematic new album in a church, she talks about her about existential crises and writing her first love song.
By Jenn Pelly, August 8, 2013

Sitting in the makeshift pew of a humble church on Manhattan’s Upper West Side earlier this summer, the newly blond Frankie Rose motions an invisible dagger towards her chest, jerks her head back, squeezes her eyes shut, and sticks out her tongue. This is how Rose comically depicts the harrowing nature of her upcoming album for Fat Possum, Herein Wild. Amping the drama, a candlelit string quartet is recording weeping orchestral parts for the record within the sanctuary’s nondescript walls. Rose peeks her inked arms up to snap the string players with her iPhone, basking in creative possibility; staring at 12 pages of sheet music for one of her new songs, she casually notes, “This means nothing to me.”
