Frances Wave, S/T Frances Wave, Released via Lonestar Records on Vinyl LP, CD.
Many say Frances Wave resembles the sound of Kasabian and Queens of the Stone Age.
Mixed with originality, an obvious joy of playing and a lovely tuned comp, it is obvious that rock is dear to their hearts.
The band from Trondheim in Norway was represented on both By:Larm and Trondheim Calling, in addition to receiving a nomination for Ur rt (which was won ” ø ” by Kvelertak in the past, for example) and getting “forbildeprisen” (the rolemodel-award) after having released only one single – the song “Black Star”. The single gave them an enduring place on P3 radio in Norway among others.
They have also been put forward as one of the most exciting in Scandinavian music by NME and has contributed on several Spidergawd-gigs.
P3 says: “Frances Wave is something as rare as a Norwegian rock band that resembles epic desert-rock with airy riffs and a rock-solid comp. Black Star is rock. If you’re a fan of Queens Of The Stone Age or The Black Keys, than you have got yourself a new favourite band.” With the help of the Spidergawd frontman Per Borten the band has recorded their debut album in his own studio and produced the album.
