Hot Video Alert: Frankmusik - The Fear Inside
Frankmusik (AKA Vincent Frank) is one of those artists I'm proud to say I've known about for years. Signed to visionary U.S. record label Cherrytree Records, Frankmusik just released his debut U.S. single "The Fear Inside" on December 14th on U.S. iTunes. He released it here in the states BEFORE releasing it in his native UK, which is pretty sweet. I feel like the U.S. is always the last to get certain imports so whenever an artist I love from across the pond releases something over here FIRST...I get a little bit giddy. For those of you familiar with Frankmusik's brilliant debut effort, Complete Me, don't worry. "The Fear Inside" doesn't lose any of the glittery 80s electro beats that saturated earlier singles like "3 Little Words," "Confusion Girl" and "Better Off As Two." If anything, "The Fear Inside" kicks things up a notch, going a little bit darker and more mature.
Lifted from his forthcoming sophomore release, Do It In The AM, "The Fear Inside" is a glimpse of things to come from the talented twenty-something Brit. According to Frank, the single "is a song about relieving the pressures and complications of the modern world through the strength of a close and intimate relationship." American fans can download "The Fear Inside" on iTunes HERE, while British fans can pick up the digital EP on UK iTunes including remixes from song co-writtter by songwriter/producer/Cherrytree head Martin "Cherry Cherry Boom Boom" Kierszenbaum, James Whitehall, Digiraatii and Guéna LG (Glam As You). Shot in downtown LA, the video was directed by Guillaume Doubet (Natalia Kills). Check it out below.
