The Frown has released their much anticipated new album “Teenage Swim” to the South African music and worldwide market, and will tour SA in support of the release, kicking off with their Johannesburg launch at Kitcheners in Braamfontein on Thursday 27 June.
Teenage Swim is made up of 7 incredible tracks, including “727“, “Dark Art“, “Metallic Kiss” and the new single “Harm“, which saw its video release in mid-May and single release to radio the week of 10 June.
The Frown is a creative force of music, production and design fronted by the dynamic Eve Rakow. Klein Baas, The Frown’s composer slash producer, makes up the other half of this multi-talented duo. They took the South African music scene by storm in 2011 with their indie track “The National” off their critically acclaimed debut release ‘A-men’. They’re an act with their fingers on the pulse; dedicated to delivering their audio visual dose of electro, dance infused pop.
The band remains at the forefront of the indie/electro scene and 2012 – 2013 saw the launch of four hot new singles with accompanying videos “Metallic Kiss”, “Dark Art”, “727” and most recently “Harm” as well as an extensive touring schedule that included performances at Oppikoppi, Ramfest, Music in the Gardens, Splashy Fen and more. They also received two MK Award Nominations for their video for ‘The National’ including a nomination for Best Video in 2013.
